Ms. Rodenkirchen from Minneapolis MN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need iPads and case in order to engage in motivating learning activities in the classroom.
My classroom is a self-contained special education classroom for preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We adapt the preschool curriculum to meet the diverse needs of the students and to increase opportunities to work on social, communication, and academic skills. It is my goal to find materials and activities to help motivate and engage my students to participate in classroom activities and to increase interactions with each other.
Preschoolers love to come to school to play, learn, and meet new friends, but some kids have barriers that make it hard to enjoy and participate in these activities without support.
The students in this classroom have high level needs, and they are not yet able to participate in a preschool classroom with a larger group of students. They need a structured environment, with a small number of students and many direct teaching opportunities. The school is located in an urban setting, and serves many children who qualify for free or reduced rate lunch. The district has limited funding and early childhood programs rarely receive the materials they need. Many times we need to create or purchase materials on our own in order to have the materials we need.
Technology provides many opportunities to engage in learning activities in highly motivating ways for my students. Through the use of the ipads, students can gain academic skills, focus and engage in classroom activities, work on social skills, and have fun learning!
This project would provide opportunities for my students to use a variety of apps to increase their engagement and motivation in academic learning in order to have fun while gaining new skills.
This project would provide opportunities for turn taking skills with friends, learning preschool concepts, and for learning how to utilize technology. The iPads and covers will allow my students to learn new skills, access new technology, work on social skills, and have fun while learning!
