Mini Kinders In Need Of iPad Minis

My students need 2 iPad Minis with protective cases to be able to utilize technology for their reading and math intervention needs.

My Students

Do you remember that first time you played with an iPad and that "wow" moment when you realized how far technology has come? Well many of my Kindergarten students have not had that same opportunity. Here's their chance!

I teach Kindergarten in a low social economic community that is gang infested with a high crime rate.

However, it amazes me to have a group of kindergartners who are very enthusiastic about school and learning itself. For many, English is their second language. This can be challenging when implementing the Common Core Curriculum. Because most of my students do not have access to the Internet in their homes, technology is a tool that catches their interests and engages them in learning in a fun and interactive manner.

My Project

I believe that my students would greatly benefit from mini iPads to help them with reading and math. There are great applications which can teach and reinforce concepts such as phonemic awareness, rhyming, CVC reading, letters and sounds, initial sounds and fluency, all while having fun! It is a chance for them to utilize technology in the classroom which can be used for both intervention needs as well as incentives!

Many of my students struggle with learning some of the basics such as letters and sounds and number sense.

They often require an extra push, more practice and intervention. With the economic challenges our school district faces, we are unable to provide extra one on one intervention without aides in the classroom. The mini iPads will have a huge impact on their learning. They will be engaged and receive the extra practice in a fun and interactive way!
