My Students

I am a first-grade teacher in a wonderful school in Wisconsin. My students are very special, and I just love going to school every day to see the sparkle in their little 5 to 8-year-old eyes. I also get to connect with students of various ages during and after school. I truly have the most special job in the world and treasure every day with my students! We participate in so many fun activities throughout the year, and our hope is to add even more.

My Project

Please help us to get an iPad Mini for our classroom! My students have gotten used to using iPads, but we are having to give them up!

Our iPads are being given to another group of students, and we need to have at least one for our class to share!

My first graders use the iPads for so many things. But, most importantly, we use them for math and science. But ours are being taken away. I really need to get my class one, so that we can continue to work on our special science projects and math practice. One of the projects we are working on is Life Cycle Projects. The students choose the animal or plant that they want to research. They look for eBooks on a special iPad program that we use in class. They research their animal or plant. They draw detailed scientific diagrams using a program called Doceri, and label the anatomy. Then they create life cycle posters, and make their own online book. Finally, they use air streaming to present the project to their classmates and grandparents! This is such good practice for my first-grade students, and it is one of the most important parts of my first-grade science instruction. Without any iPads, my students can't access the eBooks that I purchased for them to do their science with. Not having at least one iPad for my students to access would be absolutely horrible!

Please help my students to have at least one iPad to share with each other, so that we can still create and learn in a way that works so well with first graders. We appreciate any donation that you can give.
