Integrating Reading in Science Through Technology II
My students need an iPad to help integrate reading and technology in my science classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work in a Title I school with a large population of students who struggle with poverty. My students range from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. In the community I work in, there is a large population of Native American students. I thoroughly enjoy the mix of cultures and strive to promote cultural diversity in my classroom.
Besides coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, my students all differ in their academic abilities.
I try to make sure that my teaching style meets all of their needs, but finding resources to meet all their needs can be difficult.
If I had an iPad for my classroom each student's needs would be met and they would get the opportunity to learn while engaging in hands-on learning activities with the use of technology. Our high school Science department has iPads in their classrooms they use daily. I want to educate these students how to use them using similar programs. They could also have access to more text to read in the classroom. This would also help with researching in small groups.
My ultimate teaching goal is to create life long learners and to show my students that learning science and technology can be fun.
These devices will help better prepare them for middle school and high school while saving our district money by making less copies. Students will be able to complete practice assignments and assessments online. I want them to remember their fifth grade Science class and be well prepared for the future.
