My Students

My school is a Title I school and all our students receive free lunch. My kindergarteners are delightful students who love to learn. My students are still too little to understand what is fully happening in our world. They and their families are in a constant state of uncertainty.

As we have been thrust into this of uncertainty that is the coronavirus pandemic it has become even more obvious the disparity between the socioeconomic groups especially in the area of distance learning.

As distance learning has become a necessity the majority of my students have had to borrow devices from the school with some sharing with their siblings. Others try to complete assignments or watch Zoom lessons on their parent's mobile phones when they can. I have limited resources myself and unable to fully present my students' lessons and presentations in such a way that they are dynamic and technologically current. I am immune-compromised and unable to go to work to get supplies such as charting paper and a medium-sized whiteboard.

My Project

With the help of an iPad, I can use it as a whiteboard to provide more detailed lessons for my students. I will be able to do blending lessons and phonemic awareness lessons that necessitate a whiteboard that can be written on and erased. It saves the use of multiple sheets of chart paper that I don't currently have access to because I am immune-compromised at home and unable to go get supplies from my classroom. I'm unable to use the laptop because it is in use for the Zoom lessons. This necessitates the use of two devices to successfully implement the lessons, presentations, and meetups with my students.

Teaching Kindergarteners needs to be dynamic and attention-grabbing.

With this device, I will be able to also teach mathematic lessons, science, and art. Also, we'll be able to access Zoom lessons with the iPad. Another great plus of having this resource, I will be able to organize my lessons, videos, and assessments in one place and easily accessible on the iPad. My hope is that this iPad will provide me with many years of use during distance learning and eventually in the classroom when we're allowed to return.
