I teach 20-23 2nd-grade students who range from students with special needs to ESL and gifted. Students in my class are introduced to transformative technology to help them understand the world around them by connecting them with students (just like them!) from around the globe and giving them the tools to the need to be successful for the rest of their educational careers.
My students work hard to become more independent, empathetic, and responsible members of our community.
I love to see the light in their eyes when they've met one of their personal goals! That feeling of success is my "why" and I want to keep it going!
The use of greenscreens in our world has made Hollywood movies seem like magic. The students in my classroom can create innovative projects, become newscasters, and make movies from the stories they write. The littleBits coding kit will be shared with the class and used to introduce them to the world of coding. I can't wait to see their eyes light up when they discover all the ways these two products can help them create.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to increase the love of learning in my students, but you will also boost their creativity and drive to do their best.
Activities my students will have access to with your help include, presenting dioramas INSIDE their diorama, retelling a book while standing on the most important page, act out readers theatre scripts, record weekly news for families, and discover the technology behind everyday products.
