Learning With iPads!

Help me give my students a way to experience technology and hands-on experiences with Math, Science, and Reading. Getting some iPads can expose them to many different STEAM skills they need for their future!

My Students

I am surrounded by a bunch of smiling, happy and excitable first graders everyday! Their energy and inquisitiveness is refreshing to be around and gets me excited to be their teacher. The variety of backgrounds they have sometimes makes it challenging to make lessons and activities to fit all of their needs and abilities.

Helping the children utilize technology in the classroom will help prepare them for their future.

Kids love using iPads! They will love using them to practice reading and engage in math and science games!

My Project

In my Book Nook area, I have many books that the children use to build their reading skills. QR Codes are another way to help the children learn to read different nonfiction and fiction stories. The iPads will allow them to scan, read and listen to a variety of stories. Hearing the stories being read to them will help to build their fluency.

My students will also be able to engage in many math and science apps that will enhance the STEAM skills needed for their future education.

Students who use iPads for learning, will think that it is fun and begin to learn more about reading, math and science with enjoyment! iPads are a gateway to better math, science and reading skills for struggling students.
