My Students

I have the sweetest, most hard working group of 5th grade students this year! Although many struggle academically, they never give up and always give me their best effort.

My students come from low-income areas, and nearly half of my class receives special education services.

Some come from difficult home lives, and many are unable to provide the classroom with additional supplies.

Our school is over 80% free and reduced lunch. The students at our school are very bright and inspiring individuals who only need to be given a chance to be successful.

My Project

My students need an iPad mini and protective case to enhance their learning in our classroom. I would like to incorporate more technology in my classroom to help my low income students keep up with the ever changing, tech world that we live in!

Many of my students do not have access to technology at home, so by having this iPad in the classroom they can interact with technology in ways that they usually cannot.

This iPad will be used with my students in small group or independent learning to research new words, practice math, work on reading/fluency, etc. by using various educational apps. I plan to set up a schedule to allow each student to use the iPad for their personal, educational needs at different times throughout the week.

Additionally, I utilize Class Dojo in my classroom, which is a program that keeps track of student behavior and allows me to communicate with parents. Class Dojo has a feature where students can showcase their work to their parents by posting a picture and explanation to their personal "story". We have not been able to use this feature yet, but a classroom iPad will allow students to better share with their parents what they are doing in the classroom.
