My Students

I am the proud English/Language Arts teacher of these high-energy, excitable, and curious third grade scholars. In our classroom, we challenge ourselves daily to improve our reading abilities.

Living in the inner-city of Baltimore means a lot of missed opportunities for these third grade students who deserve the best education.

Unfortunately our school system does not provide us with the funding or materials our students need to reach their potential. This leads to our children not always receiving the best, most personalized instruction. These students love to learn, and I want to make sure I am able to provide them with as much knowledge as possible in my short year with them.

My Project

As the teacher of these 21st-century scholars, I witness the desire to engage with technology in the classroom every day. Children, no matter where you are, are naturally drawn to technology due to its never-ending entertainment, and the ability to meet any desire or need. Technology could be used to extend or enhance learning in any subject, in any capacity. So, why not use this as a source of engagement in our classroom?

With limited technology in our school, this project would give these students a rare opportunity to have daily access to functioning technology.

Amazon Fire tablets could be used in many ways throughout our day of learning. During small group centers, students could practice their reading fluency and comprehension through websites such as Kids A-Z. While going through our process writing, students could conduct their own research online. Students could also review already learned concepts through playing whole group review games, from websites such as Kahoot. Since I plan on using these tablets daily, we are also requesting kid-proof cases to protect our tablets from the wear and tear of frequent use.

Inevitably, technology will excite and engage any student in my classroom. Having increased technology in our classroom will benefit the different learning styles of students, increase participation, and attract students who might be reluctant in the typical classroom setting. I want to cater to the interests of my students by implementing learning that is fun for all!
