My Students

Our students are the best! I have a class of hard working learners. Each student has their own needs and it is my job to help them learn in a positive environment. One thing that makes us HAPPY is STEAM Fridays! We love incorporating science, technology, engeneering, art and mechanical to end the week just right!

A little fun while exploring never hurt anyone!

Thank you for choosing to donate to our classroom. I want their classroom to be amazing and give them all the best opportunities they need to succeed.

My Project

In our classroom, the students have some older iPads and some newer ones. We are noticing that some of the new STEAM technology that we have does not work with the first generation iPads.

I am slowly trying to get my iPad selection updated so we can use them with all of our STEAM technology.

The iPads in the room have access to OSMO Coding with Awbie, as well as multiple other coding games, but I would love to get the students going on the Dash robots that we have in our school library. This will require some newer iPads with different cases, as the students walk around holding the iPads while controlling the robots.
