My Students

Do you use technology? Some of our students have never seen an iPad or even used a computer until they started school. Learning with technology will help our kids learn in a variety of ways!

Being a Performing Arts elementary school, our students learn and show their knowledge in different ways.

Being able to offer learning in a new way is an amazing approach that will definitely benefit their learning experiences. Having apps that include; reading, writing, math, music, visual arts, and so much more will only be a plus for my students.

My Project

I feel as if my students' fluency, comprehension, writing and math skills will progress as they broaden their experiences. There are multiple apps that can help with this. We would like our students to use the amazing reading program Fast Forward that is now available on iPads. Please help our future be the best they can be.

I believe that all kids need to be technology literate, whether they are 5 or 15.

My 24 students have been sharing two iPads for the last couple months and they love the few minutes each day they get with it. I want all of my students to have enough time each day to benefit from the educational apps. The look on their faces while they use the iPad is priceless.
