Often, students in high-poverty schools need more individual help than one teacher can effectively provide. A Kindle Fire loaded with select educational apps will provide students with the practice and immediate feedback they need.
We are a rural high-poverty school in central Ohio.
We are a Pre-K to 2nd Grade building with over 400 students in a 98 year-old building. We have outdated computers and many of the fun, educational websites that we want to use will not load properly. An Amazon Kindle Fire would be a great addition to our room. Students can use its applications in many, many ways.
Having an Amazon Kindle Fire in my classroom with allow students to practice math facts, telling-time, spelling words, vocabulary and more by working by themselves while the teacher is working with others. I plan to have a check-out system so each child gets time with the Kindle Fire for extra practice in their needed subject area. I also plan to allow the Kindle Fire to go home with particularly needy students over weekends and school holidays.
My second grade students need an efficient and fun way to practice math facts, telling time, spelling words, and sight words on their own; they can do all this on a Kindle Fire tablet.
