Mrs. Matzdorf from Wrightstown WI is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math And Literacy Tablets

My students need the Samsung Tablets for their Daily 5 routines and math fluency. This will help incorporate more technology into the classroom.

My Students

A typical day in the classroom is exciting. You never know what is going to happen! I like to have a lot of self learning/discovering throughout the day. Students complete tasks independently or in groups. By the end of the year I want my students to be fluent in multiplication facts 1-10.

My school is my second family.

It is filled with wonderful children and staff who want to be here. The excitement for learning is amazing to see. I have 9 boys and 9 girls in my classroom. They are a very well respected class. I can see the excitement in them from the moment they walk in the front door! By creating a fun learning environment which these tablets will help do, they will be having fun while learning at the same time! The parent involvement at the school is phenomenal. Parents are always volunteering and communicating. It makes the year flow much smoother.

My Project

I plan to incorporate these tablets into our daily routine in two ways. The first way I will incorporate them is with Daily 5 routine. Students will be able to listen to different books on the tablets as well as complete different spelling activities. Our Daily 5 right now is lacking the listening to reading because we don't have the resources right now. The second way to incorporate these tablets into the classroom will be through math. By the end of the 3rd grade, students are to be fluent in multiplication facts 1-10. There are so many fun apps that students could go on throughout the day to practice some of their facts and they won't even know they are becoming more fluent!

Students get so excited when I tell them we will be using the iPads or the Chromebooks for part of the day.

Having the resources right in our classroom would be so beneficial for students to just grab and complete an activity. I don't want to keep finding worksheets for them to get fluent on their multiplication facts. It is important that I have the resources needed to help my students be successful in 3rd grade so that they can be ready for the years to come!
