Math, Reading, iPad, Yea!

My students need four iPads and cases opportunity to work with technology tools that excite them about learning.

My Students

Children are so excited when they are given the opportunity to choose how they want to learn. During workshop in the classroom, the students will utilize the many different apps to decide what area he or she would like to focus on for that period.

First grade is an exciting year for children.

The children in my class are inquisitive, excited and bursting with energy. Our school is a Title 1 school with the challenges that come from many languages and cultures. The computers in my classroom are hand-me-downs from the computer lab. The children like working on them. However, when I give them the chance to work on the tablet in class. There is a hush and focus that only comes with absolute concentration. Then, the giggles begin and the statement, "I did it!"

My Project

As a school, we believe it is important for the children to have access to the latest technology so they can become educated workers of the future. With that in mind, we have tried to put iPads in the classroom. We need four iPads and cases. Our class size has increased and the number of iPads has not. The children will work individually on math and language core and enrichment skills. The students will learn to use the iPad to research and present simple projects, take pictures, add text, tell stories, and learn their math facts. Working in small groups develops many skills. Just learning to work cooperatively takes time and practice. My students will begin to learn how to be students and workers in a technological world.

Supporting this project will give kids that do not have the opportunities at home, the chance to experience using an iPad.

I know that every minute and every dime spent on using technology, can trigger a child's quest to learn about their world. How exciting if this is the one way that begins a life long pattern of learning.
