My students need three iPad minis to help them fuel more chances to read in different ways, therefore, making it more exciting to read and learn.
My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, but one thing that brings them all together is their love for school and their passion for learning. They come to school anticipating those "ah ha" moments, and it's my job as their teacher to provide that for them. They are not only learning to become more knowledgable, but they are learning to become well-rounded, productive members of their communities.
They are observers, scholars, listeners, communicators, and most importantly they are passionate with everything they do.
I believe the right environment can help elicit more knowledge, more thinking, and more learning. I come to school every day with an appreciation for their "want" for more!
Our classroom is made up of 21 students. When it comes to technology my students are constantly having the share or take turns thus lessoning their chances of using technology. With the use of three iPad Minis, my students will be able to use technology to gain more interest in reading.
With iPads, this opens a whole new world to reading due to the wide variety of resources an iPad has to offer educationally.
Non-fiction, fiction, fantasy, or realism. Whatever the story may be the iPad provides the opportunity for the story to be read by my Second Grade students.
