We are a 6th grade class that comes from a culturally diverse background. We vary in our talents and interests. When we participate in hands-on activities, we come together and make amazing things happen. Our talents supplement each other and we design all kinds of creations! Some samples of our latest creations are a 3-D map of the Nile River, Egyptian Hieroglyphic writings on homemade papyrus, and shadow tracking for an Earth's season project.
We work together to accomplish our learning objectives.
Everyone contributes. Our school is unique in it's design. It was built in the early '70's. It was built in the era of open classrooms. Our rooms are now individual rooms. Unlike most schools, our walls are carpeted. We "pin" up our projects! Our classroom is on the second floor! A lot of people think our school is like a maze! If you get lost, just keep going around and around and you will eventually find us!
This project is designed to allow more students to access technology at the same time. I currently have 37 students and 20 computers. Sharing computers has been a difficult part of completing the iReady math program. Any time we need to take a test, several students have to wait for a computer to become available.
This grant will get us closer to one-to-one computer access in my classroom.
Having enough computers will allow students to access instruction and possibly allow those without computers to have one at home if they are quarantined and their families do not have a computer.
