My Students

Our kindergarten classroom is a place of challenge and discovery. I teach at a Title I school where eighty-seven percent of our students receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch. As an adult, can you imagine having to go to work hungry, tired, and unprepared for your day? For many of my students, that is their reality. 

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. In our classroom, I have created a classroom family where my students can share their strengths and struggles, and a place where everyone can be successful.

I want them to know, despite their many hardships I believe in them and they can do anything. Most of my students need accommodations and modifications to meet their needs to be successful in school. Many of the accommodations and modifications that are needed cannot be currently met with the current homework folders we have because they will loose homework to go home before they get home!

My Project

I am requesting four Kindle Fire tablets and cases for my classroom. With added tablets, the students in my classroom will be able to participate in more literacy advancing programs. Right now they only have access to those programs in the computer lab which is only one hour of our week.

My hope is that with this added technology, students of all literacy levels in my classroom will be able to participate in programs that will increase their independent literacy practice time, and in return, improve their literacy abilities.

My students are willing and ready to learn, they beg for more chances to practice and I would love to be able to give them those opportunities!
