My Students

Our typical day consists of direct teaching time and learning center time, both academic and social. During the Literacy Stations, students are placed in small groups so that they can practice skills to make them more confident readers and writers.

Our school is 75 years old, and we are an inner city school.

The student population is extremely diverse, from low income level families, to English Language Learners, to students who have been exposed to the best preschools the area has to offer. Our goal is to provide the students with as much differentiated curriculum as they need to be challenged and successful at the same time. We are very conscious of the environment and what steps we can all take to make our world a better place to live in. The parent population is very involved and wants the best for their children.

My Project

The students will use the iPad to practice letter formation, story telling, and reading fluency. The groups will consist of two to three students. Most students are familiar with iPads so this should be a form of practice that is fun with a flare. I can see this being a favorite station.

The kindergarten students of the 21st century need to practice skills in a variety of forms.

Working with the iPad will give the students a challenge that is fun and practical. Hopefully the students will transfer this knowledge and continue the practice at home.
