Ms. Marty from S San Francisco CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads for Differentiated Lessons

Help me give my students differentiated lessons! I have different grade levels, reading levels, and needs. These iPads would help me differentiate lessons by giving students access to the same books but at their individualized reading level.

My Students

Hi! My classroom is a Special Day Class with Kindergarten through 2nd grade students who have special needs.

My class is mostly made up of students with autism and speech delays, who are trying their best to learn strategies to eventually move back to the general education classes.

For some, that may be learning coping strategies for when they become upset. For others, that may be overcoming a learning disability by acquiring specific reading and phonics strategies.

Since we have different grade levels and students with their own unique needs, we are trying to create a classroom environment where we learn from each other. We are learning that even though we may be different, our differences make us stronger.

My Project

In my classroom, I have a wide range of grades, reading levels, and needs. I have some students who are working on identifying letters and others working on reading 2nd grade books. I also have some students with high sensory needs and short attention spans. In order to meet all of these needs, I use centers during reading instruction. Currently, we have four in two groups between my aide and myself.

If we were able to have iPads in the classroom, we could have three centers where all of the students are engaged and accessing lessons at their level.

We have access to online curriculum where the students can login and read books that are at the correct instructional level for them. This would also allow for smaller groups and therefore, more targeted instruction.
