My little humans are very diverse. They have different interests, abilities, and goal. We are still building on their reading, writing, and math skills. They are excited to explore all of the activities and topics that first grade and I have to offer them. They are so willing to engage with one another.
"There is two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings."
Our school works diligently to create a team atmosphere amongst students and staff. I teach with two other first grade teachers. As our children grow, as educators we grow. My classroom is about learning about each other and accepting and loving the things that make us unique. As an educator it is important to me that I am able to assist all of my students in the manner that they need.
We use many educational apps throughout the school year for many topics such as vowels, constant blends, addition, subtraction, and Kahoot! These apps help to provide an additional resource to my students. I will also use it to promote group learning with Kahoot! They will be assessed with Kahoot and be given a chance to collaborate and learn from one another. Additionally, we will be using it for iReady this year. There was a major update that now allows students to access their diagnostic assessment on iPads allow more students to get the adequate assistance they need. In the classroom when a child is struggling with a lesson or possibly excelling, for example addition, I can use and app such as Butterfly Math Addition to help them focus on what they are missing or push their learning further.
My students have been born during a technology rich time.
I want to make sure they are using this technology to enhance their learning. I will expose them to different apps that will aid in their learning in the classroom and with one another.
