My students need a Chromebook laptop to aid with researching and have access to online academic resources.
I have a diverse group of eager to learn fourth-grade students in an integrated class. I teach students with disabilities alongside general education students. Most of my students require accommodations to achieve academic success. I incorporate a lot of movement and exercise into my lessons, especially for my students with ADHD. Sometimes I have to use manipulatives for my kinesthetic learners. Some of my students struggle with their language skills and need to attend speech and language therapy to target specific skills. Other times I use anchor charts for my visual learners and to aid my students who struggle with retaining information.
My classroom is a wonderful and inviting place to learn because I recognize the talents and abilities of every child.
Within my classroom, there is a wide range of student abilities and needs. My students' willingness to learn despite their disabilities is inspiring! I believe school should be interesting and engaging and I plan to offer the best help I could to make my students comfortable learning in a general education classroom.
When students are interested and engaged in their learning, they soar academically. It is my goal to set up daily center activities when I create lessons. This way my students with special needs will be motivated and engaged in their learning. Being able to use a Chromebook and research a topic, or look up a fact, will help my students learn in an self-motivating way. Students will use online curriculum-based programs while working with partners during our math lessons. My students will also be able to research topics and gather more information for their informational writing lessons. They can access reading comprehension websites online that are interactive and engaging. How cool is that?
This laptop will not only prove to be fun and engaging to students, but will set up a strong computer based foundation for future learning.
After years of teaching, the digital divide I see in education is striking. My students simply do not have access to the technology they should. Students that explore, use, and understand how to use computers will have a more successful future.
