My students need ipads to use during whole group and small group instruction.
A typical day in my reading block involves students reading a text, analyzing it, discussing it with peers, and sharing with the class.
My students are fifth graders attending a public school in Camden, NJ.
The school is located in a poverty-stricken area. Resources are limited leading students struggle with mastering some concepts. However, they students come to school almost every day. Thus the class continues to maintain 90% or better attendance rating. They are gifted, focused and driven. They look forward to creative and engaging activities that will allow them to share their learning.
I envision students working in groups or pairs reading text on the pads or researching information. I envision students presenting their argument or sharing information from the pads. The pads will be tools that students can use across the curriculum. Overall, I want my students to utilize the pads to support, enhance, and improve learning. Students should understand the important role that technology plays in and out of the classroom.
The donations will improve learning in my class.
My students look forward to creative lessons that incorporate more than just paper and pencil activities. Using the pads will provide them with an avenue to discover and explore more. My students lives will change because of the endless learning opportunities they will be able to accomplish using these resources.
