My Students

Trying to close the achievement gap in elementary school is very difficult. Every year the stakes go up and every year my students strive to do their very best! My students come from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds. We also have a large population of students with learning disabilities that struggle to keep up and need some help to level the playing field.

Regardless of their economic or ethnic status, they are all are so excited to learn everything I present to them, and they take such great pride in their learning.

There is a wide range of valuable resources on the computer that really grab the students attention and make learning that much more exciting. I love to see the light go on in their eyes when they understand a new concept or master a new skill or strategy. They make my job so rewarding!

My Project

Every student in my class is dying to get on the computers to practice their multiplication facts, work on some of our Edmodo homework, read a book online, or study for an upcoming test with one of the many online resources we have at our fingertips. With only four working computers in my classroom it makes it very difficult to give equal opportunities with these invaluable resources to the 21 students in my class. With even just two more chrome books I would be able to provide more screen time for a generation that is moving towards a completely digital curriculum.

Technology has a special way of motivating students to learn and practice their skills in a fun, inventive, and interactive way.

Unfortunately for some students, the only computer time they are receiving is within the classroom. Because of this, I want to allow all of my students to get on a computer whenever they can. We are living in a world where everything is digital, and now even testing is on computers, so the more exposure the better.

In addition to the games and websites students can use to practice independently with, I am now discovering more cooperative learning websites that are really making a difference in my classroom as well. I love to use the chrome books for online websites like Kahoot or Quizizz to review our 4th Grade standards. These quiz like review games have the kids working together, jumping up and down in excitement, eager to get the right answers and see their team on the smart board in first place! The more chrome books we have access to the smaller I can make the groups for these games which then helps promote more participation from every student.
