My Students

My kindergarten students are full of excitement and are ready to grow and learn each day! They love to participate in hands-on learning and show enthusiasm when technology is incorporated into our classroom. Kindergarten students impress me every day on how they use problem solving as well as critical thinking skills when utilizing technology.

Our classroom strives to achieve excellence in STEAM Education by preparing all students to take their place in the diverse and changing world of the 21st century.

My Project

In Kindergarten, iPads can be used during reading, Tier Time, math, center time, and social sciences. Students would be able to demonstrate their learning and create portfolios to showcase their progress through the year.

A Chinese philosopher once said, "I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand." iPads allow us to deepen our understanding of concepts we are learning.

We are able to differentiate learning and provide each student with leveled practice and the ability to share what they have achieved!

There are endless amounts of apps that could be incorporated into our classroom to expand our learning. Students could use apps such as Starfall, Team Umizoomi, Seesaw, etc.
