Hooray! This project is fully funded
My kindergarten students are from East Central Spokane, WA. They are coming into school with many things being new to them! It is amazing the progress they have made already since the beginning of September.
They are a fun, silly and inquisitive bunch of students.
We are constantly making connections and building vocabulary around things that are currently unknown to them. Building background knowledge and experiences though hands on activities, photos and technology has helped satisfy their curiosity while sparking their love for learning.
Currently, my classroom has four iPads and three desktop computers. However, we only have three pairs of headphones, all broken and held together with tape. Our school is in the process of a large technology roll out that will make our classroom 2:1 ratio, students to laptops. In order for my students to be able to engage with the technology, they need headphones. The programs that we use in the classroom all speak to students. Whether it be giving directions, singing a song, reading a book, or naming letters and numbers, headphones are a necessary aspect in engaging in technology.
