My Students

My students learn more when they are engaged with technology and are collaborating with others. "At the heart of effective technology integration, technology offers opportunities to be more actively involved in the learning experience." - Vanessa Vega

My students are an amazing group of first graders who come to school and are eager to learn everyday.

I teach at a title one school made up of a diverse group of students who are passionate about their learning. I want to provide hands on opportunities using technology to help them be successful and confident in first grade.

My Project

Students will use the iPad and Osmo learning system to learn how to spell, improve math skills, and engage in critical thinking activities. Kids love learning math and spelling through hands on experiences using manipulatives. Now imagine learning to spell using an iPad and real life letters to spell words and play against friends. They will be having so much fun they will forget they are learning. The engagement level in my classroom will be high. We use tangrams in math for geometry. The iPad and Osmo with create a fully interactive video experience for students. The technology will be used in independent centers and small group instruction.

Your support of this project will give my first graders a chance to use technology with hands on materials to help them learn to spell to become better readers and writers and develop critical thinking math skills that they need to be successful first graders.

Thank you for your help!
