I am fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs in rigorous teaching strategies and expect only the best from our students.
My school is proud to be a "Leader in Me" school that works on taking author Steven Covey's 7 Habits, making them age-appropriate and working them into our school campus, so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.
The "Leader in Me" is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.
Students learning the habit of solving conflicts, then becoming conflict managers, is just one way the Leader in Me program in action on our campus looks like. Students take the 7 habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, all are ways that the 7 habits teach students to lead.
My students were blessed with a donation of iPads and robots. We have begun using them during our Fun Fridays to teach coding and problem-solving, along with design engineering for science. I would like to create a classroom student job for students to rotate charging the iPads for use on Fridays.
This requested charging base seems to organize the iPads in a sufficient manner while keeping the iPads in one location of the classroom.
The iPads will also be used later in the school year for our Science projects. This tablet storage and charging base is a great tool to teach students how to be resourceful with their technology.
