My Students

Most of my first graders from Texas come from a low social-economic status and do not have extra resources at home to aid in their academic success, but you would never guess! Each day they come in with the biggest smiles and most unexpected questions. Every day my students come in eager to learn. Some days they want to know how to make slime, some days they want to ask me all about a new word they heard, and some days they just want to know how to handle a bad day.

My students give me the best of themselves every day; they are excited to come to school and share their curiosity.

My students, who come from a variety of backgrounds, love to work collectively and teach each other. They have the biggest hearts and get so excited when we get to share our successes with one another.

My Project

The use of technology is a daily activity in my classroom. It is used during both math and reading as our school has purchased learning programs for both subject areas. However, neither of the programs allow for tactile exploration which I feel will make a huge difference.

When used correctly, technology devices AND the programs they support, will help prepare my students for their future careers as technology is entwined in almost every part of our culture.

The introduction of an interactive technology program such as the Osmo Learning Kit will enhance their learning experiences in math, spelling, phonics, problem solving, and creativity. It will create new and exciting opportunities for them in the future.

As an added bonus, student progress in all program areas can also be tracked so that I may zone in on particular skills in which students may need more direct teaching.
