iPad needed for iLearning

My students need an iPad to work on individualized weekly goals. These goals are attuned specifically to each students academic growth needs in math and language arts.

My Students

Learning is changing! I teach in a school with 83% economically disadvantaged students.These students are BIG DREAMERS though! Their ultimate goal is college and I am striving to achieve that dream by setting small attainable goals so they can full their ultimate dream.

My Kindergarten students are goal driven dreamers.

They have BIG dreams and want to achieve their goals. Even though many of them are first timers to the school world, they have shown a passion for their education and a dedication to see it through. Our school may be poor but the teachers have high expectations and the students here have BIG dreams. Our school has implemented a new program (really a philosophy) of Turn Around Schools/No Excuses University. It really puts an emphasis on exposing students, especially those in poverty, to college preparedness by getting them read for college in Elementary school. Our goal is to prepare every child for college if they so choose to attend and prepare them to be a productive citizen for our community.

My Project

My kindergarten students are learning what it takes to get into college. We talk about having goals and what it will take to achieve those goals. Each week they are given 3-4 attainable goals. They work on them at home and at school. Each Friday they "SHOW WHAT THEY KNOW" and we celebrate their achievements and I set more goals for each individual student. My hope is for my students to use the iPad to work on their various goal work. Some include: letter recognition, sound recognition, numbers, position and location, shapes, addition and subtraction goals.

Receiving an iPad would engage my students more with achieving their educational goals, and ultimately helping them to achieve their BIG goal of making college a reality one goal at a time.
