iPads for Mrs. L's Little Learners
My students need iPads to enhance learning, incorporate technology in the classroom, and aid in differentiated instruction.
I teach a first grade class at a Title 1 school in Milpitas, CA. Our school has a diverse community of students, many of which come from low-income households and qualify for free or reduced lunch.
My classroom is a community of creative, cool, clever, and curious 6 and 7 year olds: dedicated learners becoming future leaders.
Every class has a wide range of students. As a teacher, I need to differentiate instruction and help students of varying academic levels, learning styles, special needs, and backgrounds. My goal is to create an environment where kids love coming to school, love learning, and become more knowledgeable about world around them.
First grade is the time when students learn one of the most important skills needed in life: how to read. They learn how to blend letter sounds, how to spell, how to understand, question, and write about what they read, and so much more. Children come into first grade at various reading levels, therefore differentiated instruction is used to ensure that all students are learning at their full potential. My goals as a teacher also include making sure that students improve in their reading skills, and at the same time, making sure that students are having fun and are motivated to learn.
Your generous donation will not only help provide iPads for my classroom, but will also ultimately help increase both student motivation and academic achievement.
There are numerous educational iPad apps that would help enhance my students’ learning. iPads would aid in differentiated instruction, especially for English Learners. We would use the iPads in small group centers, with specific learning targets in mind. iPads would not only be used for reading, but writing, math, and research in social studies and science as well. Having individual access to technology would motivate the students to learn more independently and creatively, and would allow them to have resources they would not necessarily have at home. Furthermore, the students would acquire digital literacy and add to their 21st century skill set.
