My Students

I have 18 bright students, 4 of which are English Language Learners. This is a title one school that services mostly low-income students. My students love to learn. They love coming to school. I would like to keep this attitude going, while giving them the best opportunities for learning. We need 5 iPads with headphones to work in centers. Children will use these to do math activities, research, take virtual field trips, and read books. We would greatly appreciate your support!

My Project

My students with the use of iPads will have the opportunity to see places they will never see in person by taking virtual field trips. They will have the ability to read more books, many don’t have access to books at home. Some students cannot read yet and this technology can read to them while they follow along. They will gain more understanding about science and math. They can research weather, air, and plants. They can see these things in many areas, other than where they live. Students will be able to enjoy math activities that are engaging and fun, that will also meet their many different learning levels.
