My Students

My wonderful students come from the neighborhood around the school and are a delight to teach. We are a Title I school, and the boys and girls represent a diverse population. I love my position as the school librarian and enjoy seeing the classes once per week. I have created a research center with a variety of sources. We would like to add a new iPad mini to our research center.

We have been using the online Encyclopedia Britannica and online World Book Encyclopedia to gather information in our iPad research center.

We have limited technology in our library. It takes three to four weeks to get every student a turn at the iPad center to do our research activities.

My Project

I teach kindergarten to 5th grade in a high poverty, inner city school district. Our school has a nice library that the students love to visit. We devote time during our library visits to conduct research. I incorporate a segment of our class each week to science research. Also, the children love when we visit websites that have live cameras that track animals. Last year we kept up with a pair of eagles that hatched in our state.

We need a new iPad mini for our iPad research center.

We have been using the online Encyclopedia Britannica and online World Book Encyclopedia to gather information in our iPad research center. We do animal research projects, science related biographies, and environmental research studies. This year we plan to add STEM research into our iPad research center.

The students asked if the school could buy a new computer or more iPads, but I explained about budget cuts. In this situation, not having updated technology takes time away from our research center activities. A new iPad mini would allow my students more opportunities to complete science research projects in the library.
