My Students

My Kindergarten students have a sincere eagerness to learn and with the rapid move towards technology it is my hope to give each student a daily opportunity to explore and learn through technology.

The students at my school come from various cultural backgrounds, approximately 80% of them come from a home that English is not the first language spoken.

Our school is located in a urban area where most of our children qualify for reduced or free meals,

My Project

In our Kindergarten class, learning leap pads(LeapFrog) would be a valuable learning tool. Specific activities would include coins, numbers, counting, sorting, patterning for math and segmenting/blending, fluency, handwriting practice, letter identification and recognition, and one-to-one matching. During center time it is a requirement to do guided reading groups so learning leap pads would allow other students to reinforce/practice skills while their group is not. The students would benefit by receiving additional reinforcement and redirection and it would strengthen their fine motor skills and allow student to use technology more independently as most struggle to use a touch pad on a laptop and some still struggle with a mouse.

Having these tools in our classroom will not only change the attitude that school is boring but will help in building a firm foundation for cultivating life long learners.

Paper and pencils were essential for teaching kids ... at one time. That time has passed! In the 21st century my students need the latest technology to stay ahead.
