Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students will change the world! As an International Baccalaureate elementary school, or students have grown up seeing their power (and responsibility) for taking action to make the world a better place. We live in a small town north of Seattle, Washington in a school district where equity, social awareness and social justice are high priorities. Students regularly hold drives to support everything from supplies for the Humane Society, to Valentines for children in nearby hospitals, to backpack drives for children who need them. Given the knowledge they need, these children will make the world a better place. In fact, they already are!
Access to an iPod Touch will allow my students to document the day to day reflection, excitement, and new learning as well as access audio books with they read along with the text in my 5th grade classroom.
They will use these iPods to collect photos and videos to share on our classroom blog for parents and students to track progress.
Also, students can find confidence in their growth of reading while accessing the same books as their peers.
Currently, we lack enough access for students to effectively access sites such as Learning Ally which allow students to hear someone read the story to them while they read along in the book.
