My dual-language, reading classroom is made up of two classes of 43rd graders, who come to school ready to work hard and better their lives through education. Most of my students are English Language Learners and many of them come from migrant families. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily, and many take home a food backpack for the weekend. I work hard to create a classroom that is welcoming and meets the needs of all my students.
Our classroom community is energetic and excited to learn!
Two years ago, I began transitioning my classroom into an AVID-enhanced environment focusing on college and career readiness. This means we use a variety of best teaching practices (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) and my students are able to learn through many engaging and challenging lessons that will prepare them for their future. I have also made technology use a priority. Incorporating Chromebooks and iPads into lessons helps to prepare my students for their futures.
Over the years, technology use has increased within the classroom. From applications that promote reading and research, to practicing math facts through fun games, to simple typing lessons. All these and more have become part of our daily learning activities and projects.
One thing I know about 3rd graders is they love to use technology to do their schoolwork!
Currently the chromebooks are stored outside of the classroom and more challenging to get to. This locking case will allow chromebooks to be used and stored in our classroom for daily use. Each student will be assigned their own chromebook which will be locked up every night.
