My Students

Let's make learning exciting! Many of my students struggle with reading and math, the iPad can build excitement and motivation for them. My class would love the opportunity to use the iPad mini to improve their reading and math skills.

I teach at a low income school.

Most of my students do not have technology or Internet access in their homes. The iPad would allow them to become "tech savvy" first graders. We have two desktop computers that they all love to use. The iPad would allow more students to have access to the skill building games that make learning fun for first graders.

My Project

The iPad mini is a great tool for students to use. They inspire creativity and allow students to engage in a variety of learning experiences. The iPad will allow them to have a library at their fingertips. Not only will they be able to read a book, but interact with it as well. Many books allow students to click on illustrations, which will help them build vocabulary. Many books have features that allow students to record their voice as they read the story. This is a great fluency builder. There are many great apps that allow students to build skills as they play. The iPad mini will open a world of knowledge to my students that will make them lifelong learners.

Thank you so much for considering this project.

The impact you have on students today will follow them into the future. If young students are allowed the opportunity to feel successful and build excitement for learning it will follow them through their school career.
