My Students

I teach students between the ages of 5 and 6 in my Kindergarden class in the city of Huntington Park. We are a predominately a Latino school with 100% of our students receiving free school breakfast, and lunch. Many come to school in need of extra resources, and do not have access to computers, or internet. My students are giving limited access to the school's computer lab, and have shown excitement, and growth while learning on our individualized Math, and Language Arts Programs. The only problem is that we have more students than working computers. They need tablets for a learning centers that can be accessed at any time.

My Project

We need these tablets for a learning center. A group of 8 students will use the school's ST Math, Smarty Ants programs to learn skills that are presented to them at their individual pace. The rest of the class will rotate from centers to centers until all students use the tablets for 20 minutes, daily. These centers allow me to pull students for one on one instruction, intervention, and enrichment. I have 28 Kindergarteners that focus better in those small groups, and with one on one instruction. These devices will be a great way to introduce young children to computers while teaching them at their individual levels.
