I am the lucky one to be able to teach 13 energetic second graders this year. They work hard at focusing and not distracting away from the learning targets we want to accomplish. My students have a variety of learning styles which makes them unique individuals who deserve an education that is presented in a way that meets their needs.
My students come to school each day to learn something new.
We have created a family atmosphere where each student is an important human being with ideas worth listening to. We celebrate our differences and look forward to creating memories that bring us together.
We help, care, and encourage each other every day to bring out the best in each other. When we learn in a healthy way, we grow immensely.
My students live and go to school in a rural small town community with low-income/high poverty. I have purchased many items for our classroom with my personal money and the respect and excitement the children show towards these items are heartwarming.
My second grade students learn in a variety of settings throughout the day: whole group, small group, pairs, and independently. An iPad would enhance all of our learning settings.
These iPads would help my students engaged and interact while working on their own, with partners, and in a whole group.
The use of technology is what my students need more of to keep up with the 21st-century skills they need to compete in the real world.
An iPad would be an ideal tool to help them with reading skills, math skills as well as find information throughout the day. They will be able to access a wide array of educational apps that assist with learning in all content areas.
