My Students

Who are we? We are Albrecqs! What does that mean? We try our best and don't sweat the rest. It means we are brave. We are kind. We are helpful. We laugh. We are problem finders and solvers. We are out-of-the-box thinkers. We make connections. We dig deeper. We add detail. We make mistakes. We learn.

My classroom is a place students can be themselves.

Our goal is to make our brains grow. In second grade, we form opinions and learn to support them. We respectfully discuss topics. We build on the ideas of others. We invent. We research. We learn about collaboration and what it means to be a good teammate. Second grade is an important year academically, but an even more important year in life! This year, my students are incredibly funny, hardworking, kind, and compassionate. They are great people and I am so proud of who they are and am incredibly thankful for our time together. They have a tendency to make me think in ways I have never thought before. I have a once-in-a-career group.

My Project

Our district provided teachers with iPads 6 years ago. We have come to rely on the iPad for a variety of uses each day. Now this iPad is unable to connect to the internet, update, or download apps.

With a new iPad, students will be able to hear reminders for special pull-out resources.

In reading groups, the iPad provides excellent visuals to activate prior background knowledge. The iPad is also very useful in ELD groups for listening and speaking games and for providing visuals and examples of things we are talking about that I may not have on hand in the classroom. For my students who do not have access to technology at home, time on the iPad is a wonderful incentive. The iPad can connect to Rosetta Stone for our English Learners. Students can share photos of their learning with their parents via the Class Dojo app. Lexia, Dreambox, Tumblebooks, and AR book finder are just a few examples of apps my students can use throughout the day. In math, struggling students can be given immediate and specific feedback on what they are struggling with for an extra dose of practice.

Our class uses Google Classroom for writing, research, and class discussions. The iPad has such a user friendly interface that my students who struggle with logging in and using other technology can quickly get to work with ease. The iPad is also a tool I can use to communicate with parents, staff, and students. Creating interactive lessons for our SmartBoard and sharing these resources from the easily transported iPad to my fellow second grade teachers after my students go home is another huge benefit. The possibilities are endless!
