iPad Mini For Minions

My students need an iPad mini and case to use in small group practices for math, reading, social studies, and science in order to cover common core standards in a new fun way!

My Students

Everyday is a race to our 4 student computers for our Daily 5 reading rotations. Everyday is a race to the carpet to play a quick game of Fruit Shoot addition on the Smart Board. Everyday my students come in ready to learn! Everyday I try to create fun and engaging lessons incorporating technology!

My class is very diverse!

We have 25 first grade friends in our class. There are 9 English language learners in my class. I love to practice my Spanish with them everyday! At our school there are students from many different countries! We are planning to have a Multi-cultural day in February to celebrate countries that our students come from! It would be great to have an iPad mini to more research on the countries that our students come from. We love to dance everyday as a break, and our favorite song right now is from Selena Gomez.

My Project

The iPad mini that we want will be used during my daily reading stations during Daily 5 and math instruction. It will help me to differentiate my instruction with independent practice at their academic level. We currently do not have an iPad Mini in our class. I would love to have an iPad Mini in my classroom to allow for this learning to reach more of my students.

Having an iPad mini in my classroom will allow my students to explore and experience learning while being highly engaged in the activities.

Many of my students are in need of improvement with their reading and math skills. An iPad mini would allow my students to work in stations, using applications that would focus on developing reading skills, such as accuracy and fluency, as well as math skills at their own level and pace. :)
