My students need and would greatly benefit from a Kurio 7s tablet.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. - Nelson Mandela
This quote is very appropriate as the dynamics and the stakes of ensuring a quality education for all students but especially our ELL students rise daily.
Each year, I am amazed with the level of maturity and the awesomeness of my students.
This year is no different. I have eleven girls and nine boys enrolled in our kindergarten family.
Each year I am equally amazed at the increasing number of English Language Learners and the number of students who are thirsty for knowledge yet do not have support at home. This year 25% of our classroom family are ELL students. 35% of our classroom family comes from single-parent homes. As a result, our classroom, school, and district strive to go above and beyond to meet students where they are, while catapulting them to success.
My students are the best and deserve the best that I, as their facilitator, can provide.
The tablets will be used for classroom and homework support. Currently, I offer tutoring twice a week before school, during my lunch, and planning time. However, many of my parents are unable to provide transportation to tutoring, and it is unfair to continuously pull students away from the arts. As a result, students do not receive the additional support needed to maintain equal educational opportunities as their peers with support at home.
Therefore, it is my goal to video record and download step by step instruction to support ELL and struggling students with their homework throughout the year. Monthly homework will be placed upon the tablets and worked with the students via video recordings. The program will be contracted through parents to ensure that the tablets are maintained and utilized with students for homework.
For many students, the biggest hindrance is opportunity.
Investing in students not only increases the success in that student's life, it also enhances the productiveness of members of our communities.
Helping students to grow intellectually minimizes student dropout rates and community crimes while personally working hand-in hand with educators to nurture productive citizens.
