My students are in 2nd grade, and all have a learning disability. My students are diverse in many ways, including ethnically and economically. My students are all unique in their own ways, and they make my job fun and enjoyable.
"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we should teach in the way the child can learn." -Dr. Lovaas.
This statement from Dr. Lovaas expresses my teaching philosophy. I aim to make my classroom a fun and positive learning environment for my students. I recognize that they all learn in different ways, and it is my job as an educator to help teach them in those different ways. I aim to help meet their educational and behavioral needs.
My classroom is on a mission to get a class set of iPads. Getting these iPads in my classroom will allow them to be used during centers, especially with independent task completion activities. My students have challenges with foundational skills when it comes to English and Language Arts such as phonics skills, so it would be great to help them access some of our school district's reading programs through these iPads. It will also be used for math centers with fun math learning programs. Last, these iPads will be used as reinforcement for my students' positive behaviors throughout the day and during the week. The addition of technology would give my students a much needed boost of practice in the areas of listening and speaking.
