My Students

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."-Benjamin Franklin. My centers based classroom is an environment where everyone that enters is involved. We make learning fun and engaging for all!

Our classroom is a Young Fives/Kindergarten blend.

The academic and behavior level of the 21 students in my room is a very large range. I have students that are reading independently and others that are still working on the letters in their name. Our school is a PK-1 building and is an awesome, child friendly environment where everyone believes in the power that young people bring to the world!

My Project

I am requesting two iPad Minis to use during our Math and Language Arts centers with the two classroom Osmos I purchased at the beginning of the year. The iPad/Osmo combination will help me further differentiate instruction as the children work at their individual levels. In order to use an Osmo with an iPad it requires no case. I plan to have these two iPad Minis set up at stations in my classroom where they will be specific to the Osmo. I will, however, keep my eye out for a good case or two so we can eventually use them in other areas around our classroom. However, right this moment we are very anxious to try out the Osmo!

I am a strong believer that technology isn't the end, it's a means to the end.

By receiving the donation of two iPad Minis I will be able to continue meeting my learners' needs and helping them meet or even exceed our grade level standards. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could say you were a part of our classroom journey where everyone is involved!
