My students need an iPad in the classroom to help them with literacy and math skills.
My students have recently discover the wonderful website called Reading Eggs. They LOVE having the opportunity to have technology in their hands. They WANT to be in control of their own learning...
My students come from a very rural area of Louisiana.
They are a group of 20, 4-5 year olds who LOVE to learn! They especially love being able to be in control of their own learning. At 4 and 5 years old, they are just learning independence. What better way to let them be independent than by having hands-on technological experiences? We have very recently become familiar with the website Reading Eggs, through our school-wide subscription. My students are able to work on this website as a whole group learning experience, but I would LOVE to be able to provide them with one-on-one learning by having the use of an IPad in the classroom. Our classroom has no funds and only 2 older computers in the classroom. Our 2 computers have been giving trouble off and on throughout the year, and I would LOVE to have a way for my students to be able to use technology without having to worry about if it will break or not.
I feel that this technology will help me reach students that learn in ways other than conventional teaching. This is the age of technology and I want to provide them with as much as possible during their first year of school. With the donation of an Apple IPad, my students will be able to have one-on-one access to Reading Eggs, Starfall.com, fun math games, etc. These websites help them build on the skills that they need to learn how to read, do math, and succeed in school and life.
By donating, you are helping to ensure that my students are able to have that hands-on experience with technology that they so desperately need at this early age.
Having the access to websites and educational games provides extra support in their lifelong goal of learning. An IPad will help us gain that access that is needed in my classroom.Read More
