My Students

My bilingual 2nd grade is formed by students and families from Mexico or Central America, with very limited economic resources. But they are absolutely engaged and motivated learners and they love to attend school to discover what is new daily.

Our group loves to learn by playing, touching and investigating by themselves the curriculum content.

It is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are becoming independent readers, writers and math problem-solvers, while some of them are still learning to read, write, and count or being familiar with math strategies.

My Project

My kids are in need of new resources to keep up their motivation in learning math. Most of my students belong to a very poor environment and they are not supported or motivated by their parents at home and they can't have essay access to technology resources.

We will use this tablet as touchable screen to practice the content with digital resources and play math games during our independent work stations, which sure will keep them engaged on what we are learning.

When my students learn by playing games they are more focus and motivated. Therefore, they will show a good understanding of concepts and better results after they use the stations. Usually, we have 20 minutes for stations everyday so they will have plenty of time to enjoy and learn math during the school year.

Furthermore, they will learn how to organize materials and be more responsible with school property devices to keep them in good conditions of use for a long time and future students.
