iPad For The Classroom!

My students need an iPad in the classroom in many ways. There are several educational apps that would help engage the students in math and literacy.

My Students

Help us keep our students engaged and up to date in technology.

If you took a tour through our classroom you would see wonderful little six and seven year old children, engaged in learning.

They are a very diverse group of children. They love to be read to and love any sort of technology I through their way. I use my iPhone with educational apps on it as rewards for students that need extra incentives in their learning.

My Project

I am requesting the help to get an iPad in the classroom. Their is so many educational opportunities that come with these little bundles of joy. They are a great way to engage students in their learning in all subjects. They are also a great behavior management tool, helpful with children who need extra help with fine motor skills, and much more.

This project is so important to me because I really think that it would benefit my students greatly.

The students of today's world LOVE technology and every little bit goes a long way. This would be a great help in the room.
