Reaching ALL Learners With Technology!

My students need 7 iPads for our classroom!

My Students

How would you like to listen to a celebrity read you your favorite story? How would you feel if you were a second grader doing fourth and fifth grade math? By adding technology to our classroom, my students will be able to do both of these things and much, much more!

My second graders are some of the funniest, most inquisitive people I have ever met in my life.

Everyday they amaze me with a question or an observation they give during a lesson. My twenty-four students range in abilities with some barely speaking English, while others can comprehend and read well-above a fourth grade level.

My Project

In order to reach my broad range of learners, I use a program called Daily 5. This program allows my students to make different literacy choices while I work with individuals or small groups. By far the most popular choice is Listening to Reading. With these iPads, I'll be able to have more students make this choice, which means some of my struggling readers will have more exposure to different literature that otherwise I may not be able to provide. Also, my classroom uses the Accelerated Math program, which is another way for me to differentiate for all learners. The program allows each individual student to work on Common Core objectives at their own pace. This program has now gone online, therefore, having these iPads in the classroom will allow my more talented mathematicians to have a chance to work that much faster at achieving harder and harder math skills - possibly moving into upper grades if they're ready.

Donating to my project will change my classroom and my students by moving them into the future with added access to technology.

Students will be more motivated and excited about learning. It will enable more students to use online resources to meet their own individualized educational needs.
