Help First Graders Connect to the World!

My students need four iPads to create blogs, make movies, comment on each others' work, and learn to code.

My Students

My incredible students are smart, kind, fun, funny, and hard working first graders! Most live within a few blocks from our school, and they have a wide range of interests, needs, and backgrounds. Some of my students have two parents, and some have one. Some of my students have many books at their house, and some have very few. Many students live in housing projects near the school, and many others live in large houses.

My students are active, energetic, compassionate, and helpful.

They love to learn through games and movement. Most are eager to help each other learn, solve problems, and clean up. Our class feels like a family.

My Project

My students are using the website Seesaw to share their work with their peers and families. They are so excited to publish their writing, and the bin that I created to take pictures of their work and put online is always full.

With iPads, students can take pictures of their own work, comment on their friends' writing, create movies and pictures to document their learning in all subjects, and are empowered to share their learning beyond our classroom.

We will use these four iPads collaboratively throughout the day. Students can document their math strategies while solving problems to put on their website, and can play math games online. We will learn computer coding during science and can create movies of our science experiments.

We can celebrate reading achievements and practice our fluency using the website Lexia, and by recording ourselves with books. Our blogs will engage us to become better writers. Because I am asking for four iPads instead of 24, we will work together in groups to share our technology.

My classroom has four often broken student computers and access to a computer lab once per week. This technology is not sufficient for Seesaw or getting children ready to compete for jobs in the 21st century. Please help my first graders connect to our world by funding iPads.
