My Students

Imagine.......... being 6 or 7 years old and the only safe place in your life is your classroom. But, for the first month of the school year you were without the consistency of a permanent teacher.

I teach a first and second-grade combo class of 22 students in an urban school district and high-needs community.

The largest obstacle for my students is what they are subjected to every day outside our classroom. They witness violence along with many other things in their community; although, in our classroom, they are safe, engaged, and ready to learn.

My Project

Technology is a staple of our time and my goal is to have at least 4 Chromebooks to help meet this need.

Technology is the future and my students deserve to be a part of it!

I am requesting four Chromebooks to provide visual, kinesthetic and auditory learning and scaffolding during science and math lessons. Computers can bring math and science alive in the classroom. For math, students will use them to support the lesson that we are covering. Our math program allows for personalized review targeted toward the students' needs. We will also use other websites for this as well. For our language arts block, the Chromebooks will be a part of our daily literacy centers. Each day a group of kids will go to a site that allows them to read books at their level. For science and social studies, the Chromebooks will be helpful by actually showing the concept in "real life." For example, students can see how weather can be dangerous. The area where we live does not allow for the student to experience different types of weather. Instead of showing a picture of a tornado or blizzard, students can see the real thing!
