My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching 18 first-graders. I teach at a Title I school in an urban area where there is a high mobility and poverty rate. All of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

I have a very diverse classroom with several students in the beginning process of learning the English language.

All of my students love hands-on learning, technology, and working in groups, helping each other with their learnng. They enjoy sharing their ideas and knowledge during math talks.

My Project

My students enjoy practicing their math skills using computers and tablets. Children have shown to be very savvy as far as technology goes. I want to explore that interest by having students play math games on their Kindle Fire.

Students will have fun playing games while practicing learned math concepts and skills.

The Kindle Fire will also help students develop their language skills by listening to stories and playing phonic games. I will use the Kindle Fire in small groups as students rotate through their groups during Math and Literacy blocks. Students will be able to access games and lessons at their skill level, but they will also be challenged in the process.
