Make the World Their Oyster!

Help me give my students iPads for the rigor and appropriateness that is more appropriate in small individualized grouping.

My Students

Recently, a tornado displaced students and teachers from an elementary, middle, and high school here in Dallas, Texas. Unfortunately, I was one of the teachers at a middle school that was destroyed.

Now I am at a different middle school and am need of things that I used to take for granted as I still do teach Reading grade six, but now have also been assigned a program called CHAMPS, a program designed for over-age 8th grade middle school students.

This helps the children get the extra credits they need so they can graduate with their "real" class.

So, what I would really like for the children is about 5 IPADS do small group with the children I will work with in Reading as well as CHAMPS.

My Project

Like snowflakes, each child is different and will thrive in a variety of different ways. Using many of the applications via the iPad, small group assignments can be assigned that will allow students individualized yet quality opportunities to access a better understanding of reading and writing skills, like main ideas, summaries, proofreading, editing, rewriting, publishing etc.

IPads open up a "real world" experience that can help children understand how reading and writing turn to story writing, movie making, and "real" time research.

The world really is truly their oyster when they have up to date technology that gives kids a chance make the school to world connection!
