My students are a wonderful group of curious and kind first graders. They love to get involved in many school activities. This year they are learning about how to become internationally minded and have positive attitudes.
My students attend a Title 1 school which means most qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
This, however, does not reduce their desire to learn! I am always looking for opportunities to bring my students to the next level. My busy first graders are eager to go to centers and continue the learning process. They love math and reading. I have 20 students and 3 computers. Without enough computers in the classroom and a limited time in the school computer lab, it is difficult to make sure each student gets the time they need to spend gaining these skills. The Chromebooks will be used in the math and reading center.
My math and reading center need more computers to help students with daily practices. Having only 3 computers, some students do not get to go on the computers daily. In addition, most students do not have computers at home. The ChromeBook will help improve my students reading levels, vocabulary, grammar and basic math skills as they prepare for the end of the year testing. I could download apps for various math practice skills for a math center, which would allow me to have activities for both my high-level students and my low level struggling students. Students will also have more time to complete their reading assignment on i-ready.
