My Students

My 5th-grade students are truly the "best" students to work with. They are respectful, hard-working, caring, engaged, and eager to learn. Every day I am excited and thankful to work with this special group of kids!

Working in a high-poverty school, students don't always have access to everything they need to be successful.

Right now, we only have 2 desktop computers (and it's hit or miss the days they work) and 5 iPads. My students are so excited when it's their day for the iPad or when we are able to go to the computer lab as a class, because of all the things they are able to do! It truly makes learning fun for them! Two Chromebooks would give my students endless opportunities in our classroom!

At our school, we have a GREEN mindset which stands for:

G: Growth Mindset

R: Responsibility

E: Excellence

E: Empathy

N: Nobility

Every day our students demonstrate what it means to be GREEN! I love how helpful, caring, and kind our students are to each other and to the adults in our school! We have a strong Wolf Pack here at our school!

My Project

This will help my students have more access and experience to technology in their classroom! We will be able to do a ton of things on the Chromebooks! Some examples include:

1.) Students will have more practice typing on a computer, which will prepare them for the real world, and also our state assessment which is all computerized.

2.) Research projects-they love to research online!

3.) Individualized math and reading programs that engage students in their learning!

4.) They can read the news or on Newsela to help learn about other parts of the world!

5.) Collaborative projects on Google.

6.) Students will disabilities will be able to use voice to text to complete their work.

7.) Typing up their final draft of papers they write in class!

8.) Spelling tests

9.) Learning vocabulary

10.) They will also be used as a reward for positive behavior in our class!
