I Wish I Had an iPad

My Students

I teach 47 eager-to-learn third grade students in a low socioeconomic school. I team teach with another third grade teacher. I teach math to two classes, in addition to all other subjects (excluding reading) to my homeroom. More than half of my class receives free lunch.

My students show up every day excited to be at school and ready to learn.

Unfortunately, many of them do not have traditional learning materials at home that foster learning through hands-on learning experiences. I need your help updating the materials in my classroom. Due to economic strains, our classrooms are suffering. Without your help, it is impossible for me to purchase these things.

My Project

My students would love to use the latest technology in our classroom. An iPad would enhance their learning and prepare them for the future. There are many apps for the iPad that will give my students independent practice in reading, writing, and math. This iPad will allow me to hook up to our Smartboard for interactions while moving around the room. My students will be able to play review games and practice important skills necessary for them to succeed.

This Apple iPad will keep my students excited and engaged in their learning.

It will prepare them for a future of using technology. I will be able to use this iPad each year with my students to enhance their learning.
