My students are young and eager. They enter class ready to learn something new, and ready to practice the skills we've learned already. Half of my class is learning English as they learn to read. They are wiggly, bright eyed, and full of energy. Technology is new to many of them. Some children in my class have no access to technology outside of my classroom. They are so excited by the prospect of doing research. They are full of questions they'd like to find the answers to.
My students use several sophisticated learning programs each day. They listen and read ebooks on Raz-Kids. They learn about language, grammar, and vocabulary with Lexia Core 5. They get math lessons from Zearn and they have opportunities to problem solve with STMath.
These programs enable me to call small groups for curriculum differentiation.
The use of technology has transformed my classroom! The children love the activities they get to participate in and they are learning beautifully.
It amazes me that first grade students are able to adjust to technology so easily. They're learning more efficiently than ever. We love our Chromebooks.
