iCan, iAchieve, iWill, on the iPad!

My students need 2 iPad minis to help enhance their fluency with 21st century technology.

My Students

Out with the old and in with new; global resources are what we are trying to acquire. My students need materials that promote inquisitiveness, creativeness, and engage them in meaningful real life situations. Let's challenge our students to become competitive among other 21st century learners.

Our school is small but mighty.

We are one of the smallest schools, population wise, in central Florida. My students come from Haiti and several Spanish speaking countries. Our classroom is strategically set up to promote independent learning; however, we are still in dire need of basic technology that wealthier surrounding schools are embedded with. We were only allocated money this year for state mandated curriculum. Let's face it, only with your help can we make this school year a success.

My Project

My students have an array of learning difficulties that range from using fine motor muscles for writing to understanding the English language. All iPad products have over 300,000 apps that are specifically made for supplemental learning. I can target every learning strategy by engaging my students in fluency, comprehension, main idea and solving mathematical problems that correlate with our curriculum. Each of the main curriculum manufacturers also design programs on the iPad to reinforce foundation skills. Instead of my students using worksheets and workbooks, they will be intrigued with using colorful and invigorating apps that spark creativity.

My students need to have people who believe and echo my passion for low socioeconomic schools.

I have 19 kids who are going to start learning on a whole new level because of YOU. If it weren't for children to work collaboratively on their iPads during center time, they wouldn't receive the same enrichment as other fortunate schools.
