My students need technology for learning. With 3 more tablets I can complete a technology center. Tablets can be used to help students who need extra practice to students who need a challenge.
First grade students are fun, energetic, and determined to learn! LLES first graders are in a low socio-economic area title 1 school . 91.6% of my students qualify for free and reduced price lunch. My boys and girls are mostly English Learners from a beginning levels ( little to no English) to bridging ( almost mastering their second language).
No matter the level , my group of first graders are determined to learn their sounds and start to read!
My little lions show PRIDE ( Positive attitude, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, and Enthusiasm) in every task in the classroom. They love to learn with STEAM and work hard to be independent workers. I am proud to be able to teach such a wonderful group of children.
Tablets in the classroom can be used for many small group activities in all subjects. While I am working on new skills with one group, another, can be practicing needed skills and learning how resourceful technology can be from elementary to university.
Tablets allow us to take practice to a new level that allows students to self-correct and self-pace with almost instant feedback.
This encouragement allows the students to build confidence and problem solve as they move forward with their curriculum.
There are many ways we can use STEAM in the classroom, incorporating writing and reading practice for every level learner.
Science: students can take science to the next level. We can use these tablets to make observation journals for our plant life cycle unit. We can also use it in our animals unit by taking notes after observing animals via live stream cameras at the San Diego Zoo. This will allow my English Learning students to familiarize with new vocabulary words.
Art: Using a Sketchbook Application, students can become illustrators and show comprehension for students of all reading levels and with different learning styles.
Math: My students can use the tablets to increase math scores on their STMATH program. There are also APP's like Sushi Monster or Moose Math that are interactive games to practice addition and subtraction facts.
Language Arts: English learners or students who need more phonics practice can use the interactive games our Wonders curriculum offers to practice their new phonics skills.
Best of all, first graders are all about learning to read! Our curriculum has interactive story books for English learners, beginners, intermediate and high level readers to ensure every reader has support. The only thing holding us back is the lack of technology, but your generosity can open up a new level of learning
