My Students

My 1st graders are kind, creative, inquisitive and hard working. They love to ask questions and enjoy learning new things. They enjoy hands on activities and learning by exploring. They also love to learn with technology.

My students need more technology to help them explore new ideas, organize and present their learning and learning in new ways.

This technology will give them the opportunity to explore and learn.

We are a fairly new school and still growing our technology, so this project will definitely add to the learning in my room.

My Project

These iPads will help my students explore learning in a fun way. They will be able to research questions and topics they want to learn more about. Learn more about things they are interested in. They can use them to show off their learning with presentation apps. They will be able to access online books that we do not have in the classroom. They will be able to practice skills in math, phonics, and reading using engaging apps that make practice and learning fun. These devices are easy for kids to navigate and there are lots of apps that are designed just for them.
