My Students

"We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world." -David Warlick

My Kindergarten classroom is filled with curious, creative learners.

These young scholars run into school each day with an amazing enthusiasm for learning and experiencing new things! They simply thrive when they work together to explore and learn new concepts. My students don't let the fact that they attend school in a high poverty/ low-income area affect their learning goals. They believe that the harder they work the smarter they will become.

Even through hardships, my students may face, they are filled with the joy and determination to learn.

My Project

The possibilities are endless when it comes to technology use in the classroom. My plan is to use the iPads for iReady instruction which is a district-wide reading and math program where students work on the essential skills needed to be high achieving scholars. The iPad minis are not compatible with this online program, but iPads are. When not in use for iReady, students will use the new iPads for work in math and literacy centers. Students will have an opportunity to listen to stories using a fun and exciting program called MyOn during literacy centers and work on important math skills during our daily math centers using an engaging online program called StarFall.

The donation of the iPads will make a huge difference for my students in helping them move forward in their learning and being on grade level as they gain new reading and mathematics skills.

"Technology is not an event. It's just part of everyday learning."
