Hands On Techology

My students need tablets to be able to use in reading and math groups. There are so many educational apps that are beneficial to the students and we don't have access.

My Students

Each day we have small literacy groups to differentiate reading instruction. During those groups the students rotate and are completing worthwhile learning stations. I would love to have tablets so that the students can access educational applications during small groups.

My students are a diverse groups of children.

Our school has varying socioeconomic statuses, as well as, special education, orthopedically impaired and hearing impaired students. All students are met on their level academically and pushed to succeed. We have high expectations for all of our students and differentiated instruction in order to help all the student to excel.

My Project

My students will use the tablets to meet their specific needs. Students are grouped by skill level for reading groups in order to meet all academic needs. When they are in a small groups, with or without the teacher, they need specific tasks they can complete on independently on their level to help them achieve the needed. skills. These tablets will be used with educational apps specific to the groups and needs of the students.

These tablets will be used with educational apps specific to the groups and needs of the students.

By using this technology, the students can practice the needed skills in order to gain knowledge and repetitive practice, while having fun. This will increase independent reading skills and help the students to succeed in reading.
