My Students

I teach 1st grade at a small country school. This will be my first year in first grade but my second year with most of these kiddos. I taught Pre-K at this same school and had many of these students; I love them already.

My first graders are amazing and deserve the very best!

We are going to be working very hard this year and I want them to have as many opportunities as they can. We are very excited about this project.

My Project

Our class will be working in small groups and centers throughout the day. I would like each group to have an iPod to use as a timer, scorekeeper and camera. There are several educational apps they can use on the iPod. I also plan on taking them on field trips, so the students can take pictures from their perspective to share with their families when we get back to school.

The possibilities for learning with an iPod are endless!

Most of the students are already familiar with using an iPod or iPhone. We will not need to waste time learning a new device.
