My Students

My classroom is a diverse inclusive classroom of low-income students aged 3 to 5. For most of my students, this is their first learning experience. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. We are located in the inner city of Pittsburgh and provide a free comprehensive program that is designed to nurture and support each child as we prepare them to transition to kindergarten.

My students are very interested in learning about letters, math social studies, engineering and science, and enjoy exploring with technology.

They are dreamers, thinkers, and questioners and love to discover new things about the world around them. Despite the challenges they face they come to school each day ready to work and play with smiles and positive attitudes.

My Project

We live in a society where technology is necessary for communication, travel, business, and learning. Young learners need daily opportunities to explore and utilize technology to prepare them for 21st Century learning skills.

Our students deserve the opportunity to explore and utilize technology so they will become confident and fluent in Reading, Math, and Computer skills.

I am asking for Osmo Genius kit and IPad to help my little geniuses learn important skills using an IPad. The Genius Kit will help my students learn how to use creativity and problem-solving skills through hands-on-play. The Osmo Genius Kit come with five games that will allow my student's hands-on interaction with art, math, science, and reading.

The Tiggly Math and Shapes sets will help build the basic foundations of knowledge that are important to further development as well as teaching technology skills needed for further learning.

Having these items in our classroom will build students confidence, technology skills, coding understanding, and knowledge!
