We are a public charter school in an inner-city neighborhood with very limited funding. One hundred percent of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch, and many have faced more hardships at age six than some people will face in a lifetime. Yet, despite all of the challenges my students face, they come to school each day with big smiles on their faces. They are motivated and excited to learn.
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, they are on the move.
Making school fun while learning is all I really want for my students. By making school a place they want to go I am hopeful to inspire our learners to continue to love school and move forward with a positive attitude.
Have you ever picked up your tablet and wanted to read a book but found out your battery is not charged? It happens so often in first grade. Having a home charging station where tablets can be left to charge when they are finished reading a book online or playing educational apps will heal many broken hearts in first grade. My scholars always look forward to tech time in class. So imagine going to your favorite station and it's no longer available. By having a charging station, the tablets will always be in one location and always charging. And as you can imagine, no more broken hearts in first grade.
