My Students

My students are eager to become technology savvy in this new Common Core era. By the end of the year 1st graders should have access to the internet and different apps/programs that allow them to enhance their math and reading skills in our challenging environment with limited technology.

My students need to integrate technology into their daily lives within the classroom.

My students come to class with a wide range of backgrounds and ability levels. They are intrigued by technology. Two years ago, technology became a big part of our school and now that demand has increased. Most our students receive free/reduced lunches. Some families are unable to provide the technology at home due to financial reasons and therefore our students do not have access to technology at home. My students are eager to learn and need iPads in our classroom to succeed in math and reading. By providing iPads in the classroom, our students would have a higher percentage of success in the future.

My Project

iPads will provide countless learning opportunities during the week. The main reason I am requesting these iPads are for the students to use during centers. Last year I discovered Skoolbo and would like to run a center of 4-5 iPads where students focus on Skoolbo for 30 minutes a day. Skoolbo gives them access to math and language arts skills and provides a progress report to the parents and the classroom teacher. I would also like them to focus on their typing skills and would be interested in finding a good typing app to help them practice their typing skills and to prepare my students for 2nd grade. I also plan on downloading other math and reading apps to help them strengthen their current skills.

iPads will provide countless learning opportunities in math and language arts/reading throughout the week.

Having iPads will increase my students' motivation to learn and will allow me to run smoother, independent centers. I hope that by adding iPads to the classroom environment my students will have the opportunity to learn how to integrate technology more efficiently.
