My students love to be creative. I try very hard to give them a wide variety of ways to learn. But, let's face it, today's rigor in the classroom doesn't allow for a lot of creativity.
We have several classrooms that work with Autism, Various Learning Exceptionalities, and students with disabilities, as well as typical learners.
It's what makes us amazing! In my class, besides my typical learners, thirty-one percent of my students are ELL, six percent of my students are ESE and students that are Autistic. Sixty-three percent of my students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. I am a very lucky teacher to have a diverse group of students.
I have an amazing group of first graders. We have recently added a flat screen television to our classroom, where I am able to present our daily lessons directly to the "big screen". As a recent project, my students had the opportunity to create a power point at home and share with the class, using our big screen tv. The computer we have now, is not compatible with the new technology of the television.
A new laptop computer, will help my students to be College and Career Ready and able to do research and create power points.
One of our favorite annual project is our Animal Museum. Adding an extra computer to our classroom, will allow more students to access the internet for research and create a power point to share with their classmates on the information they found.
Our district has our students doing a computer based assessment. They need many opportunities to practice the lessons that go along with the assessment. Having another computer will allow me to have another computer available for my students to practice.
