My Students

My students are living in the heart of Waikiki, the center of tourism on Oahu, Hawaii. As a Title I school, with 65% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, the need for resources is very high due to school funding. My class is made up of 11 English Language Learners. Most of my students come from Micronesia or Pacific islands. This is usually their first experience in a school setting. Their language might be limited but they have a desire to learn. There are two special education students who are a big part of our class Ohana (family). They bring perseverance to our class.

Students have a strong sense of curiosity about the world, yet their curiosity is limited due to limited supplies.

Most of my students come to school with the desire to learn and achieve their goals. They want to explore the world around them and learn about culture and diversity. Hawaii is a melting pot of culture and traditions. From the moment they come to class, they are excited to learn.

My Project

In my kindergarten class, the students enjoy learning through technology. The students are twice as engaged in a lesson when they can go online. Access and ability to use online tools prepares them for the future. iPads are a great way to teach multi-level students. They are simple and easy to use; this is especially helpful for students of special needs.

Ipads can be useful in multiple ways within the classroom.

For example, I use them in small groups to practice learning letters or with Osmo kits, where students participate in multiple math lessons. Students will also use the iPads to take a picture of their work and share it during class dojo for their families to view.
