ipad For Common Core Technology and Grade Level Books

My students need 2 tablets for more extensive use of technology which will put research at their fingertips and have access to class books. They need class sets of three different books, as well, including "Shilo" and "Magic School Bus and the Electric Field Trip."

My Students

Help us with materials! We currently borrow class sets of books from other schools. We also only have access to the computer lab once a week, and have only 2 student computers in our classroom. It would be wonderful for the students to have access to materials and technology more readily!

We do a lot of choral reading in class.

They enjoyed the borrowed book Island of the Blue Dolphins! They love more opportunities to read in groups and as a whole group. The kids do many projects and these requested materials will help them excel with the expectations of Common Core. By the end of the school year we hope to have read 4-5 grade level chapter books and complete research based projects. Many of my students did not believe they could have read grade level chapter books, but they have preserved and hunger for more.

My Project

The students are excited to learn about researching on the Internet. More technology in the classroom will allow more students access to research one time. The technology will allow and prepare my students for the common core assessments and meet the challenges of common core. With the ability to do more research inside and outside the students can have learning on demand and at their fingertips. As of now the students do not have enough time accessing technology.

My favorite quote is, "Where there's a will, there's a way!" Whether or not the students have access to all the materials being requested, they strive to do the very best they can with what they have.

They make me proud everyday!
