The students at my school are an amazing group of kids who are chomping at the bit to learn all they can. They are so excited to be at school. Our school, comprised of K-5 students, is focusing on having a growth mindset.
Our kids have really taken the growth mindset idea of "the power of yet" to heart.
They are hard workers and dedicated learners. Our students already understand that mistakes and failures are parts of learning and help us grow so they are not afraid to try in class! They welcome the challenges they're given because they understand that hard things help their brains grow and become smarter!
I need an Apple Pencil to help navigate and work on my teacher iPad. I have an iPad, but I mostly use my finger to manipulate things on it. This makes it difficult because I can't make small, precise marks on the iPad with such a wide surface point like a finger.
An Apple pencil will allow me to teach from my iPad in a more precise and accurate manner.
I also allow my students to use the iPad during lessons to answer questions and/or demonstrate understanding of a concept. With their little fingers and lack of fine motor skills, a pencil like this will help them interact with the iPad successfully.
