iPads to Stay Engaged

My students need 2 iPad minis and cases.

My Students

Some of my students have not yet discovered appropriate 21st century skills. The students of today need to be equipped with skills that will prepare them for the future.

My students are very energetic, fun loving, first graders.

We are a part of a Title One school where the majority of the students are not proficient with the English language. Many of my students are ELL (English Language Learner) students who are caught in between learning English and learning the curriculum of first grade.

My Project

This year our school is trying an independent hands-on approach to teaching and learning. A typical day in our first grade classroom during math usually consists of 3 focus lessons. We begin with a 10-15 minute lesson introducing our math lesson for the day, then students break up into centers for about 20 minutes. We have a total of 3 focus lessons and 2 center rotations. While at centers, my students will be thrilled to be able to use iPads to learn math.

With mini iPads, my students can use apps to help them practice math skills they need.

There are a countless number of apps for math that my students can use if they were to have an iPad. My students can be inspired to really want to learn with an iPad. My goal each year is to do all I can to have my students engaged in learning and I truly think that this will help them continue to stay engaged.
