iLearn with iPads
My students need three iPads for technology driven station learning activities.
My first graders are incredibly hardworking and strive daily to grow and reach their goals. The majority of my students come from low-income families, and many are English Language Learners. Due to these factors, my students start first grade on many different academic levels.
My students' favorite part of the day (and mine as well!) is small group stations for both math and reading.
During this time, students work at different stations in ability based groups. Stations include technology, partner work, and academic games.
For the upcoming school year, our schedule will consist of primarily small group work and stations. I believe this will push my students towards even greater academic growth as well as improved social and teamwork skills.
My students love learning from technology, and I would like to incorporate a technology station into our math and reading centers. To do so, our class needs three iPad minis. Our class received 2 iPad minis and cases through DonorsChoose.org last year, and they have been a wonderful addition to our classroom.
Due to Chicago Public Schools budget cuts, I will have a greater number of students in my class this coming year.
Students will have less time on the iPads and less chances to learn with technology. The iPads will be used for both math and literacy centers which are core components of our classroom.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
