My Students

I am a "techie" and my goal is to make my students technology masterminds! Coming into a tech classroom in a low-income school means most of the students do not have the technology at home but are enthusiastic to learn about it in class.

I teach reading and language arts to groups of energetic and enthusiastic third-grade students.

We are a Title 1 school meaning most of our students are low income and their first language is a language other than English. I also teach ESL students (English as a Second Language). The students will learn English in my class. Many of my students come in below level, and it is our goal to bridge the gap.

My Project

My goal is to have my class be technology savvy! In order to do this we need four Samsung Chromebooks. We have a plethora of computer programs and games to use in order to enhance our curriculum. In order to do this we need to beef up our technology and provide more computers for our students.

Flipgrid is a computer program where the students create educational videos and post it on the class Flipgrid.

The class Flipgrid essentially is an interactive site. They will be reading a story and they will pose a question for their fellow students. Using Flipgrid they will collaborate to create the questions based on the standards learned for the week. The students respond through the Flipgrid app by recording themselves answering the questions that are posed.

In order to make this project successful we need four more Samsung Chromebooks. This will be an interactive classroom site where the students will collaborate with each other digitally.
