My Students

The students I choose to teach are special to me because they are each so different. Fourth graders have developed beautiful and fun personalities that are excellent to teach.

More than half of my class are considered ESL (English as a second language) and many are ED (economically disadvantaged).

This by no means makes them less than. Instead they have a deeper love for school, but do however have specific needs in education. They require more attention and differentiation that I simply love to give. They need to be taught in multiple ways, and have opportunities to practice that learning in calm, relaxing, and fun ways.

My Project

These Amazon Fire tablets will bring technology into the classroom. There are so many resources on these tablets that will enhance student learning and performance. They will be able to choose from hundreds of books that are not in my library at school and can read them in an exciting way. Also they have to option to have it read the book to them, so for my struggling learners and ESL students this is a major resource for them! Also, my students can get on to Prodigy and ImagineMath. These websites are designed to increase students' math performance. They allow students to practice math in fun ways, and keep data for the teachers to utilize.

Not only are there hundreds of books my students can read on them, they can get on the many academic rich websites on a daily basis.

Amazon Fire tablets have many apps for education. So students can utilize all the education apps provided and grow their knowledge in exciting ways!
