My Students

My students express their love for learning every single day and it has been amazing watching them grow from the beginning of kindergarten!

They are becoming independent thinkers and problem solvers and are constantly impressing me with their abilities.

They love to use technology in the classroom and are able to use it all with confidence. I am always looking for different ways to utilize the iPads and provide opportunities that challenge and excite my students. The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to see how far they will go!

My Project

My Kindergarten students are always eager to use our iPads to practice reading and math skills independently! They use them every day and have developed a sense of responsibility for taking care of them. We are so thankful we have been provided over fifteen iPads to utilize in our classroom. We currently keep some of the iPads in a dish drying rack and some in a bucket. I only have a few chargers and have to alternate which iPads get to be charged. This makeshift system makes it not only difficult for me to keep them organized and charged, but makes it hard for the children to practice their independence.

I absolutely love that I am able to provide my students opportunities to use technology in our classroom, but we are losing valuable instruction time trying to keep the iPads charged and organized.

These iPad charging stations would be the perfect fix in our classroom!
