Mrs. Chestnut from Malden MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPad Round 2!

My students need an iPad in order to utilize programs to build their math fluency. They can also access phonics and reading programs that will be so crucial to building their reading ability.

My Students

My students are 3rd grade ESL students, many of whom are from low income families. They are a very diverse group of students; representing a number of different countries and languages. Many of them are brand new to the country and they are all working on developing their English language abilities.

These students will have a variety of needs and they will represent a wide range of abilities and skills.

They will need a lot of strategic instruction delivered in small group format in addition to whole group, partner work, and group work format.

My Project

My students are all ELLs, and so they require intense intervention in many areas. This iPad will give them access to literacy programs to build their decoding skills.

In third grade, building fluency with math facts is also really important.

Many of my students are very strong in math and enjoy practicing. This iPad will be useful at math centers to build their fluency with multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction facts.

Technology is always a really engaging way for students to interact with course material, and I know this iPad will hook my students in and help them LOVE learning. For many of them, this might be the only time of the day they have to interact with technology, which makes this project all the more important.

Currently, we have 3 iPads in our classroom collection, and they are used CONSTANTLY. I am working to slowly get 2-3 more so that I can have a full center and all students in that center get work quickly and efficiently on an iPad. Lets make it happen!
