iPad Frenzy

My students need iPads so they can explore the world of technology and to enhance their reading decoding and comprehension, as well as hone in their math skills.

My Students

My school is in high poverty rural area in North Carolina and qualifies as a Title I school. While many of my children qualify for free or reduced price lunch, and most of them take home free food in backpacks for the weekends, they all have a zeal for learning. They enter the classroom excited and ready to learn something new daily.

While their financial and familial backgrounds are quite varied, each child has individual strengths that contribute to different whole group events, such as class discussions, partner research, and presentations.

My students will be having a new experience this school year. Two schools in the area are blending together to form a new magnet school. The old school, my Title I school, will merge with the only magnet school in our county. Many of the families in our school lack financial resources to provide them with extras. I want them to know that I believe in them. More importantly, I want them to believe in themselves in order to reach their potential.

My Project

I want to provide an iPad for my students. These children have an innate ability to operate technology. It interests them and holds their attention, thereby engaging them fully. Having students with a wide variety of abilities and learning levels presents instructional challenges and the iPad will meet them where they are and carry them forward.

I believe having additional technology tools will facilitate learning in literacy and math.

This will enhance some children's abilities and enable others to understand the concepts presented in math and reading.

The iPad and the learning apps will allow the children to learn and become fluent with addition and subtraction, decoding new words, and reading fluency. It will be engaging and will allow them to play games, thereby learning without being aware they are.
