My Students

My students are so amazing in so many ways. Many of the students I work with need a little extra boost in different aspects of Reading, and I am here to pinpoint what it is and work on it. I have 38 student I work with directly on a daily basis. My favorite thing about my job is the small groups I get to work with. Each student has a different skill they need to work on. I need to have various ways to work with them, and lots of supplies to be able to do so. If I receive these ipads, we'll be able to work on specific skills that each child is needing, not an overall group activity! Kids LOVE technology, but I want to be sure I'm using it to their benefit, not just for fun. I believe this will actually work in both favors for me!

These students have worked so hard and have come so far already this year.

I can't wait to continue my work with them and see them grow this year!

My Project

Technology is a great way to practice different aspects of Reading on an individual basis. ipads have amazing apps, many being free or very inexpensive. I can use these to keep changing how we are learning and switch it up from time to time.

Using ipads, I can differentiate each student's learning with different apps or using the recording piece to help them become better readers.

My students LOVE using my chromebooks, but they can only go online. Using apps on the ipads, we'll be able to specifically work on Phonics, Phonemic Awareness, Sight Words, Fluency, and so much more!
