Each day my kindergarten students come in ready to learn. Many students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and cannot afford the basic school supplies. Our students are made up of children from various cultural backgrounds and many of their families do not speak English and therefore cannot help reinforce what is taught when they are at home.
The amazing experiences my students have already began to have in the classroom has brought smilies and joy to their faces each morning when they arrive at school.
I have 24 five year olds in my classroom who are eager to participate. At this age my students are like sponges. Helping my students would give them the greatest gift of all.... the ability to learn in a fun and exciting way!
My students are in dire need of technology in my kindergarten classroom. In today's world children need to be exposed to multi-sensory ways of learning. The iPad helps to give my visual and tactile learners another way of gaining basic reading and mathematic skills needed to succeed in kindergarten. iPads also allow children to be introduced to STEM activities, which help to produce a higher level of critical thinking skills.
These iPads will be used during both math and literacy centers throughout our day.
Centers help students learn collaboratively and foster skills for children to become independent learners.
Our technology use in the classroom is extremely limited and I would love to give my students the opportunity to have a hands on way to understand the world as it is today.
