My Students

My first graders are highly motivated, enthusiastic English learners. Everyone receives free school meals. The school is located in a low-socio economic neighborhood surrounded by nonstop high traffic, mom and pop shops, and poverty. The majority of the students’ parents both work. Even though the students have challenges, they come to school with eagerness and excitement each day with a smile and ready to learn attitude. Our class is a democratic community where students make suggestions, share ideas, and serve as important decision-makers. Students know their voices are heard and what they have to share is important. We are a team of both learners and teachers.

My Project

Due to the on-going budget cuts at public schools, the students cannot visit the school computer lab (at this time). But to remedy this situation, the school has given the first grade classes a class set of Chromebooks to share (Yay!). Even though this is a blessing in disguise, with readily available and ample time usage of computers in the classroom (for everyone), Chromebooks' touch pad is very tricky for young six year-olds. Since the students have never used Chormebooks before, a wired mouse will allow them to have an easier and comfortable experience when they learn to navigate the Internet and develop typing and coding skills.
