My Students

I have a great group of 5th graders in a high-poverty area. The neighborhood where our school is located is one of the most dangerous in the city. Our district is facing a financial crisis and cannot provide us with the resources these children deserve. I want to create the best possible learning experience for these children so that they can have a better chance at success in school. Technology will only help to create more meaningful experiences for my students.

My Project

My 5th grade students are working hard to prepare for the state tests in April. One of the biggest challenges for my students is staying on-task and focused on the task at hand. They get easily distracted by what is happening around them and pay less attention to their work.

I would love for my students to have privacy partitions to help them focus on their tests without being distracted by their peers and their environment.

I would also love to have more materials that will help with test preparation. The task cards mimic the types of questions found on the state tests, which will help my students become familiar with the format of the test questions.
