My Students

In my math and science classroom, my students are always discovering and creating new things. We typically do a lot of science investigations, experiments, and projects. We use a lot of different resources in math to re-mediate and extend.

A majority of my students are from low income families.

They tend to enjoy coming to school because they have a routine, feel safe, and have friends. I also have a few students who are from high income families. These students have very involved parents and a lot of support at home.

My Project

My students will be using the Samsung Chromebooks to work on research activities and investigations, to create presentations and projects, to work on interventions and extensions, and practice skills they learn in class. They will be using these Chromebooks multiple times a day.

When we have more access to our new Chromebooks, we will be able to enhance our learning every day, rather than just every six days.

We are currently on a rotation for the Chromebooks, so this would help drastically!
