My Students

In recent years, technology has become more and more important in the classroom. We want to provide our Pre-K children with an iPad to help them have more opportunities to have hands-on learning.

Our school houses Pre-K to fifth grade students.

We are a Title 1 school that sits at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our classroom is a NC PK classroom that serves children that are four and five years old. For most of the children in my class, this is the first experience that they have had with a structured environment. We want to provide a rich learning experience during this critical period to instill the love of school.

My Project

Technology is a growing necessity in our schools. Our Pre-K children learn best when they are able to manipulate the object and have a hands-on approach. The iPad will provide hands-on learning with reading, writing and other important academic skills. We want our Pre-K children to become 21st century learners by incorporating technology in our classroom in various fun ways.

By providing our Pre-K children access to an iPad, we will be able to incorporate technology on a daily basis with various activities.

Our children can use the iPad to read a story in the book center, they can research a topic of their choice or take a picture of their block structure so they can recreate it the next day.
