Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. My students are diverse in socioeconomic background, home environments, social skills, learning styles, and interests. Many students do not have Internet access at home. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
This Chromebook and headphones will help our classroom come alive. We use a reading program that helps supplement key reading skills that are necessary to student literacy. This program requires sound. While I have several student computers, most are older and the sound does not work. This particular class also has limited access to the Internet at home. I know that this technology will help take their reading to new heights! They will use this technology to do programs like Flipgrid, Raz Kids, IXL, Google Classroom, Dreambox, Lexia Core 5. Students can immerse themselves in content and learn how to use technology!
