My Students

Do you remember how much fun you had in first grade? Was it plain and boring? My experience wasn't. Our first grade students are the founding students of our school. These tools are needed so our learning environment can feel and look like other classrooms. Education should be fun for all students!

We cater to the students that society says cannot go to and through college.

Before we can blossom, we need technology to go beyond Z. We are first grade students who want to grow and go to college. We need the exposure to new materials for learning and motor skills. We have zest about learning and endurance while learning. We bring new ideas every day, we always show integrity, and, through teamwork, we can build a more humane society.

My Project

This tablet will help give my students technology in the classroom. It will help enhance their learning experience and make learning fun. Learning should be fun for every student.

My students can use this tablet during small group time or center time.

During small group time, it can be used to help a small group of students learn from technology lessons created by the teacher. During center time, my students can explore and learn from the tablet.

I feel my students will enjoy every second they spend on the tablet while learning. I think it will make leaning in my classroom fun.
