My students need to add 5 iPad minis to their learning tools.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My 4th and 5th grade class is full of diverse learners. If you walk into my classroom, you will find students working in different ways and using a variety of learning tools. Some students may be sitting on the rug engaged in their favorite novel, while others may be listening to a book at their desk and following along with the text. Some kids will be working with a partner to expand their vocabulary, while others are typing the final draft of a personal narrative. Additionally, you may see children working on a small rug with Montessori materials, such as, using a puzzle map to locate the regions of the Unites States. My students appreciate the opportunity to have choice within their daily work.
One of the best things about my students is that they truly enjoy helping each other and learning from one another.
Since I'm usually teaching small groups during their work sessions, they depend upon one another when a problem occurs. Whether it be a Chromebook issue or confusion about how to complete an activity, they ask each other for advice and support. Their learning differences do not prevent them from extending a helping hand!
Adding iPads to our list of learning tools will not only give students an additional choice, but it will also provide special needs students and struggling readers with technology to help improve their reading skills. Additionally, students may use the iPads to create multimedia presentations for class projects.
Students will have the option to use apps like Epic books which provides a free digital library in which many books have a read aloud option.
Other reading apps, such as Book Creator, will allow kids to write and record their own ebooks. Also, apps like iMovie provide user-friendly video editing that my students will use to create book trailers and other projects!
