iPads en Espanol

My students need iPad minis to access all the Spanish resources available with this new technology!

My Students

Imagine watching all of your friends play computer games and watch educational movies in school just to find out that you can't. My students often feel let down because all of the fun computer games and videos the other classes play aren't available in Spanish.

My students are first and second grade Spanish bilingual students.

All of them were born in the United States and speak both Spanish and English. We happen to be the only full time bilingual class in our building, so my students spend a lot of time feeling different and a bit left out. I am always looking for ways to offer my students more educational opportunities, just like the other kids have, but in Spanish.

My Project

About six months ago I attended an amazing bilingual conference. There I was shocked to learn that, while the world of computer programs and websites with Spanish educational resources is still lacking, iPads have an incredible variety of apps available to help Spanish speaking students with phonics, reading, math, and even science and social studies. I was so excited when I heard this, but at the same time bummed because there was no way I was going to be able to afford an iPad for my classroom; we only get $50 a year for supplies. I know that if my students had the opportunity to work on an iPad during our Daily Five literacy centers that they would be exposed to the technology the other classes enjoy as well as be able to expand their knowledge of academics and the world through Spanish educational apps.

Technology is a huge buzz word in education today.

Everything is moving away from paper and pencil to laptop and tablet. I don't want my students to miss out on this exciting new world of learning just because we can't afford the resources to provide them native language support. Please help my students to get iPads for our classroom so we can explore the Spanish language apps out there! Gracias por apoyar nuestro sueno!
