My students are 5 and 6 years old. They live in the Northern Naples area. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunches, meaning that they live in a low-income household. They are active learners who would love some new resources!
Our school is in Collier County.
This means that we adhere to the Collier County district guidelines and schedules. Due to the fact that they are Kindergarteners, many of my students are new to school altogether. I have a unique opportunity to instill a love of learning and a love of school in my students from the very start.
My students need four iPad minis and protective cases! My students will be able to access apps that reinforce skills and enable higher level learning. An iPad helps students who are kinesthetic and visual learners, open up the doors of education, and individualize their learning experiences. The iPad will become a tool that will help create more authentic learning experiences in the classroom as well as build 21st-century skills that our children need in order to be successful in a quickly evolving technical world. My students will be able to work in centers with the iPads, writing, reading, learning phonemic awareness skills, working with math manipulatives and more. They will be able to create both independent and collaborative projects in order to show a true understanding of concepts.
iPads are integral and amazing tools that should be present in every classroom please help us get ours back in the classroom.
Without consistent access to technology, my students are not able to access 21st-century skills. I believe that they should not be held back because of lack of funds but deserve to explore and learn on the same level as students who have this access. Our classroom will be forever changed by the addition of iPads. All students will be able to access learning through technology on a daily basis - amazing!
