iPads for Ms. K's Super Scholars

My students need 4 iPads with protection plans for audiobooks, various applications to build math and oral reading fluency, and other resources to support their individualized learning goals.

My Students

I currently teach 6th grade ELA and math in a Harlem middle school where a majority of the students live in the housing projects across the street. As a learning specialist, I work primarily with students who have learning disabilities.

My students are energetic, optimistic, and determined to be academically successful, but a majority of them need support in order to achieve their full potential.

They have gaps in their understanding but are hyper conscious about being perceived as different or "slow." This makes providing the support they need a bit of a challenge. By building trust and celebrating growth, I've been able to mold them into excellent self-advocates. But I would also like more resources to make learning fun for them and to target the skills that they really need to master.

My Project

I am asking for 4 iPads to support our students with disabilities.

My students are hard-working but have learning goals that are not always addressed in the general education curriculum but that can be addressed with technology.

Let me give you an example.

C doesn't know her multiplication tables by heart, but she would if I could put an iPad with an appropriate app in her hands 15 minutes a day, 3 days a week.

K. really wants to read "A Wrinkle in Time" but is reading on a 3rd grade level. She's more likely to stick with the text and improve her vocabulary with an iPad. Let's download an audio file to support her literacy!

S. can understand almost any text he reads, but his inaccurate oral fluency is holding him back. He hates practicing boring skills but loves tech. Gee, I wish I had an iPad with a fluency app on it.

I could literally write 30 paragraphs about how these iPads will benefit my individual students. With this technology, my students will be empowered to close the gaps that hold them back from fully accessing grade-level material.
