In a small rural town on a reservation in the state of Montana are the most joyful class of 22 wonderful five and six-year-old students. These students bring such joy and creativity to their school and classmates. I might be a little biased about my first class of students but these kids are thoughtful and eager to learn.
These 22 kindergarten students are inquisitive and exhilarated about learning each day in the classroom.
They are a unique group fo students because it is the largest class in the entire school. They all love to laugh and have fun in each daily activity. If it wasn't for this great group of students my first year teaching would never have been so successful.
I will be using a variety of applications to support my student's needs in literacy and mathematics. For example, I have personally bought programs for my tier 2 and 3 students to support their foundation in letter name recognition and fluency. During the last hour of the school day, students work on practicing academic skills with centers. I want to provide a more dynamic center using an iPad to support my students who are in need of intervention. Due to such a large class size and only one teacher, the Ipad will allow me to support each student dynamically. The application allows for me to track their growth as well as their areas that are at risk.
