Help me give my students a Dell computer to extend learning experiences, especially for those students who, at times, have disruptive behaviors but will attend to learning technologies in the classroom environment.
The students come to school excited and eager to learn, even though most come from low-income homes. My students often suffer from low self-esteem and poor relationship/social skills. As 9 and 10 year old, these children often hold adult roles in their homes, and rarely have the opportunity to just be a kid. I believe my students are future "world changers" and deserve the opportunity to develop all the skills necessary to be just that! In spite of their economic circumstances we love our students and embrace the opportunities we have to educate them.
Students initially enter the room and work with direct instruction for 30-45 minutes. They then navigate through a schedule of reading centers of vocabulary practice, reading comprehension, reading grade leveled passages to each other, making words with lettered dice. In math, the centers involve multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction facts online and using arrays to build addition and multiplication problems, using dice to create multiplication problems and calculating solutions, using dominoes in addition and multiplication calculations, using manipulative s for division and subtraction problems recording math sentences and solving them.This will not only add to the learning environment but will also catch students who are having a difficult day due to behaviors adding to their academic learning experiences.
