My Students

"Knowledge will bring you the opportunity to make a difference." --Claire Fagin

In my first grade classroom there 24 students who come from various social economic backgrounds and experiences.

Each day my students come in eager to learn and expand their young minds. As we move forward with implementing common core, I see that technology becomes more essential to have in our classroom. Most of our students come into class with a mind set that using technology is nothing more than playing a game. As a teacher I want show and teach my students the endless possibilities that technology, like tablets are useful TOOLS to enhance our learning in the classroom. It is essential that our students are exposed to the use of technology to research, learn and to be able to compete with the rest of the world.

My Project

Having these tablets and keyboards will allow me to teach my students the basic keyboarding skills that will be essential in the upper grades. My students will be able to publish their creative stories as we are wrapping up a unit in our writing workshop. These tablets will be for individual use as well as small group. With the educational apps, my students will be able to practice reading and math skills . It will also give my students opportunities to participate in shared research and writing project. With the tablets, students will also be able access to books at their reading level.

When my students leave my classroom, I want them to understand that they can utilize the tablet as a Teaching Tool that has enriched their learning.

I hope that they will be excited about the tablets and continue to build their love for learning.
