My Students

First grade is an amazing year of tremendous academic growth! Many students enter first grade reading just simple words (consonant-vowel-consonant words or words with beginning blends), but by spring they can really read!

My students learn in a hands-on environment, and we share the joy of learning!

My school is a public school in our local school district. Most of our students come from military families. My students are open, engaged, they love to learn, and they are enthusiastic about school.

My Project

I have access to a library of nonfiction eBooks. With these iPads, pairs or small groups of students will be able to conduct research for animal reports. Having a library of books at different reading levels in the convenience of an iPad provides a vastly different research experience to my students. Students can enter their topic and browse from many options. The service I use even has a "read to me" feature, where some books are read-alouds, so students who can not yet read the books can conduct the same research as more advanced readers. I enjoy seeing my curious students work, and providing three iPads to them will provide more opportunities to follow their interests and LEARN!
