My students live in some of the most challenging home environments. Poverty, prison, single parent, drugs and death plague some of my sweet students. My five-year olds have endured life-changing events that some adults could not handle. Even after all of this, my students still smile when they come to school. My students are my children. The teachers at my Title I school endure a lot of sweat and tears and truly love teaching the children there. We are there because we are needed.
My students use an online portfolio that allows them to share with their parents what they are learning in the classroom. The Amazon Fire tablet is an affordable way to get amazing technology into the hands of eager kindergarten students. There are a ton of educational apps that can be used to motivate a learner and provide differentiated instruction. How fun would it be to create a story on the tablet rather than on paper? My kindergarten students will love this! My students are being raised in the technological age and need to have access and instruction on how to use technology. My student who cannot write will now be able to dictate and the tablet will convert her words into text. That is amazing!! Thank you for your consideration.
