My first grade students are eager to learn despite the many hardships they may come from. Our classroom has both students from general education as well as those students with special needs. In addition, I currently have a family that is homeless. Their academic ability ranges from nonreaders to fluent readers.
Our school is a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade building in the heart of an urban city.
One hundred percent of our children receive a free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students have never left our city. Despite many of their parents not having graduated from high school, they want their children to do well and be successful in school. They ask for ways to support their children at home and school.
My students are enthusiastic about learning using different technology resources. We currently have two iPads in our classroom. We utilize these iPads for all subjects areas, but use a great program on them for math and reading.
Another iPad will reinforce instruction by providing students with more practice to master new and learned skills.
I like using our iPads for learning centers because it makes learning fun! We utilize apps that have different learning concepts so the iPad can be used for many different learning targets and goals. These apps also allow for differentiation.
Our iPads helps me reach students who are ready to move on while I help those who may need a little more practice learning a new skill.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my project. I would greatly appreciate your support in helping me reach my goal. With your support, we can improve academic skills among all the children.
