I teach at an incredible school collaborating with a superb grade level group of teachers. I have a fifth grade classroom of 17 girls and 12 boys at a Title I school. A Title I school is where a certain percentage of the students at a school receive free or reduced-price lunch. More than 50% of my class is receiving free or reduced-price lunch. 30% of my students are English Language Learners. I am trying to open the possibilities of them becoming college and career ready while gaining life long skills they can apply in their lives.
Every day we work on the power of yet!
We are learning skills that we have “yet” to reach but with practice and perseverance we will get there. There are no limits to learning in my classroom, but there are many days where students are trying to get through the day with distractions they may have that inhibit their ability to stay focused, complete tasks, and grow academically.
In my classroom, some students work better with the use of headphones, wireless mice, and technology. I will be able to have two centers in my classroom with the addition of these Chromebooks and accessories. My auditory learners will be more focused and process much better with the headphones to be able to listen to content on various educational websites/learning modules and apply it to the assignments they are working on.
The usage of the Chromebooks provide both visual and auditory inputs that allow my students to better utilize their faculties for learning and organizing information.
Students will have an easier time to collaborate on presentations and projects since there will now be more Chromebooks on hand to enhance the various aspects of those presentations and projects.
