Apple iPad

Help me give my students an Apple iPad to complete our technology center.

My Students

Kindergarten is such an exciting age group of mixed abilities, interests, and goals. While some students are learning to read and write, others are developing language and motor skills to hold their pencil or paintbrush, and others may excel in numbers, counting, and patterns.

Our class has worked well so far this year to build a classroom community where we all have responsibilities, take turns, and care for each other and our materials.

My students are thoughtful, creative, and full of questions each day. They love the hands-on materials and engaging projects that require them to "think outside the box" and open-ended questions. Each child loves learning even though the method by which they learn best varies greatly. Each day, our lessons are taught through different ways to incorporate all learning styles and interests to make sure all students' needs are met. I am lucky to teach such an amazing group of kids so eager to learn each day!

My Project

My students love learning on computers and tablets. Our principal bought a year subscription to Reading A-Z Raz Kids for kindergarten to use. We need iPads for students to use the app. They can sign in and read each day by choosing from many online books that interest them and are on their individual reading level.

My students can also use the iPad to research projects we work on all during the year.

They love to research!

With iPads, students are able to touch the screen and manipulate it much easier than Chromebooks with touchpads for still developing motor skills common in kids this age. I also have a special needs kid receiving physical therapy, and he is able to use a touchscreen with ease.
