My Students

I teach in a high poverty school, with the large majority of my students receiving free or reduced lunch. I am a Special Education Resource teacher, serving students in both 3rd and 4th grade. I currently work with twenty students with up to ten in my classroom at a time.

My students are kind, enthusiastic and very hard workers.

In order for them to continue to make progress, I need to meet their learning needs. The students in my classroom are very motivated by the use of technology and I am always looking for new ways to involve technology in our daily routine. However, due to a lack of funding, I am not always able to supply them with the resources or supplies that we need.

My Project

We are in need of an Apple iPad and the program BrainPop in our classroom in order for my students to advance their learning on a variety of topics. They will also allow my students to have the opportunity to expand their learning through the use the online program and the many features it offers. My students love to use technology, but many do not have the opportunity to use technology in their homes.

With the iPad, we will be able to explore a variety of topics in small groups through the use of videos and games offered on BrainPop Jr.!

The addition of the iPad in our classroom gives students a chance to learn more about their areas of interest, as well as share their knowledge with others. It will allow for more students to have the opportunity to use other learning applications and websites.

BrainPop Jr. is a great program that I have used before in my classroom. My students loved the videos that were offered and it made their learning more fun and engaging. It also allowed for me to teach my students on topics that we would not otherwise be able to explore.
