My Students

I have 20 wonderful 2nd grade students. They come from very diverse backgrounds and add a lot to the classroom culture. These cultures are embraced and celebrated. The climate at my school is that of a family.

My students are all eager to learn and ready for challenges.

Many of these students come from low income homes. Students come in with a lot of baggage and many of them work hard to persevere. The students learn to adapt to their environment and gain coping strategies to be successful at school. Through this, we try to help them at school by giving them as many resources as possible.

My Project

Students in my classroom would benefit from having an iPad in the classroom. They would be able to document their learning digitally and share it with their families. They would be able to take video and pictures to share their learning. Students could use their coding skills and more. There are many apps that will help enhance their learning. Students can utilize technology that is quick and easy when using an iPad.

Students need more technology to help enhance their digital learning.

Using an iPad would allow for more digital learning in our classroom. Through different apps, they would be able to create portfolios, text documents, digital stories with imaging, and more. They would also be able to do activities that would allow them to check their work without having to ask the teacher if their answer is correct. This would help them to become more independent learners.
