I believe every child can learn if we challenge, guide and provide the tools needed. By the end of the year, all children will improve their literacy skills, science, and mathematical skills. My students will be more active, have healthier lives and learn about tolerance among them and our school community, which will aid them in being more successful in second grade. The challenge comes with the lack of materials and all the budget cuts.
We have a high number of free or reduced-price lunch students in our school and district.
Our classroom is an all inclusion model, where all children learn together. Because of the bad economy, some of our students are homeless at times. They are immigrant English learners from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Spanish learners from the community around the school. My children are so eager to learn new things. Our wonderful staff in our community school continues to learn and implement new ways to teach our students and strives to help everyone succeed.
"Let us pick up our books and our pens- they are the most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” -Malala Yousafzai. My students will be able to use a laptop to listen and see Brian Pop Science videos, Discovery videos and practice Math skills. With the laptop I will be able to model and and control and manage easier other apple products in the classroom that will help them learn skills that we are learning during Math class, Science and Spanish/English Reading. The laptop will give students the opportunity to listen and see Science videos in Spanish and English.
Having this new technology will give all my dual languages (ESL) learners the opportunity to have 21st century technology.
The laptop will help continue the reading happening at school during our Science/Reading units.
The technology will help them prepare for second grade and have a great bilingual education in our school.
