iPads for Firsties

My students need an iPad.

My Students

Most of my firsties have moved multiple times in their short lives due to their parents being in the military. Most have no computers or ipads at home and have never experienced the excitement of interacting with the wonderful learning apps an ipad can provide.

Our public elementary school is populated with many children of enlisted military members.

We are very close to the largest military base on the east coast. Most of my families live in military housing and many do not have computers or tablets at home. Many of my students struggle with reading and have gaps in their learning due to moving so often for their parents' career. Most have never had access to the wonderful world of interactive learning apps that ipads can provide. Thank you for considering a donation to my first grade class!

My Project

My first graders will use the ipads for interactive listening centers, phonics and reading apps, multi-player phonics and math games and simply to expose them to the technology that they need to be successful 21st century students. Most of my 1st graders have never experienced holding an ipad in their hands and watching it "come to life" as the use the apps. Struggling students need more than just busy work to do while I am working with other guided reading groups. I would like for them to be able to move on to another tier of interactive learning after leaving their reading group.

This project is so important because my students have such a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences.

They come from all over the country when their parents are stationed here. Enlisted families don't usually have luxuries like laptops, computers and tablets at home. My students need exposure to this technology not to mention the extra boost the learning apps will provide them.
