My Students

All of my students are special and important! My students come from low income families, single parent families or homeless families. The neighborhood in which these children come from have low income housing where they often do not feel safe. Violence is becoming a part of their everyday life.

Since Hurricane Irma hit Puerto Rico we have had an influx of students that have relocated.

Many do not speak English and struggle to communicate. School can and should be a safe place for these children.

My Project

Wow how times flies! Several years ago my class received an ipad for our room. The children loved it! They used it everyday and we had a "turns list" for who got to use it next. Fast forward to today and our ipad has really slowed down. It has become a "dinosaur". There are many Apps that we would like to access but we can't because our system is too old and out of date. We have had to move to the desktop computer which is a little overwhelming for a three year old! Our school district is moving away from the desktops and on to laptops. Laptops are even more overwhelming!! We used the ipad for letter and number recognition, counting, beginning and ending sounds, rhyming, alliteration, story telling, letter and number tracing, puzzles and learning games. We also videoed and took pictures that we used throughout the year. We also like to make social stories to help children overcome fears such as coming to school , riding the bus and basically anything they need help with. I cannot make these stories anymore because the system is outdated. I am asking for 2 ipads so more children can access all it has to offer. Can you help us?
