My second grade students are fun, curious and spontaneous. They come every day into my classroom ready for a new adventure and eager to learn. Even though they come from struggling and dysfunctional families, school is their happy and safe place to be. They are always willing to work hard and do their best.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district where 76% or more of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
From the minute they walk in my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire my earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My little friends need some technology in the classroom, and I need to create engaging, educational learning centers so that I can work in small groups to make a more meaningful impact on my young students. A Chromebook would solve both of these issues in such an awesome, innovative way!
Adding a Chromebook to a learning center will inspire students as it promotes literacy and builds math skills with engaging games, while at the same time giving students at the teacher table the individualized attention that they so desperately need.
This will make a significant, lasting impact in my classroom.
