My Students

A typical day in our classroom begins with writing a quote in our journals and reflecting on what it means. Then we set personal goals for the day. One recent quote is from Benjamin Franklin, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."

Our population includes many children who come from military families, single parents, multiple-family homes, and a wide range of English Language Learners.

This means that my classroom will have a lot of differentiated instruction with students ranging from high achievers to those with special needs.

My Project

There are over 80,000 apps just for education. With a class iPod, students will have access to audio books, speeches, virtual tours, and videos. Students can also use the iPod to record themselves reading and for video projects in a variety of subject areas.

Our class does not have access to any handheld technology, and we have limited access to computers.

Please help me reach my goal of giving my students hands-on, real world experience with technology and set them up for success in the 21st century.
