Mrs. Miller from Wheeling WV is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students technology tools they need to take their learning to the next level.
I have a unique group of second graders with a wide range of talents and abilities, likes and interests. I have 25 students in my homeroom class, but I also get to teach math to the other class of second graders, giving me the wonderful opportunity to interact with all of the second graders in our school.
As a class, we work to form bonds and become a family.
We establish our rules and expectations and work towards forming good habits. My students are curious. They are explorers. My students love hands-on, project and activity based learning. They enjoy learning and some really light up when they realize they've understood a new concept.
These tablets will provide access to many wonderful math tools for my students. My students will be able to use virtual manipulatives, websites, and apps to build and practice their math skills. Additionally, the S pen will allow students to take notes and work problems on the tablet. More importantly, though, I want these tablets, memory cards and camera for their recording capabilities.
They will really take ownership of their work as they create videos for others to watch and learn from.
I want my students to create their own presentations. Imagine how they will shine as they create a video explaining how to solve a certain kind of problem. In addition to creating the projects, they will also serve as videographers for each other. They will then learn some basic video editing as they create, watch, and fix up their videos in preparation for sharing them with others. This project will really help take their learning to the next level as they truly take ownership of and master different math skills.
Furthermore, these tools will also be awesome for taking pictures and recording our science experiments and projects. Students will shine as we document their journey through second grade.
