My Students

My students are 21st-century learners. Technology in the classroom is a way to increase engagement and motivation for my students. They soak up information like a sponge.

I teach first graders who are excited about learning.

They love to use iPads and technology in the classroom. They think they are playing games when they are really practicing literacy and mathematical skills needed to be successful.

My school is a low economic school where students do not have access to the technology that we can provide at school. Providing them with the opportunity to create and practice skills using technology will prepare them for future experiences. Technology is part of their world and they need to know how to use it, and school is the only place most of them get the experience they need to be successful in the 21st-century.

My Project

This project will make a difference in my students’ lives because it will get books into their homes for them to read. Books are fun and engaging and my students will want to re-read these books over and over. They will also get other people to read to the book to them. It is a book we read in class. We laugh together while reading and have a good time. It is a fun book because it has no picture and we have fun imagining what it would look like.

This will have a positive impact on my students and bring a smile to their face.

They are not sure what is going on right now and they need positive things that make them smile. This will be a piece of our classroom they will get to have at home.
