My Students

Do you remember when the teacher/student ratio was 1 to 15? I do, because I have been teaching for many years. I want to provide an exciting fun way for my students to learn so I can have more one on one time with all of my students.

I have a classroom full of students who have just began a new and exciting journey in their life.

My students are sweet and excited to learn. Each and every child walks through my classroom door with that crave to learn more. I want to help provide a wonderful experience for every child. My students have walked into an unfamiliar place for the first time and I want to provide them with a love for reading and school. My students want to learn and with today's society we need technology to help engage to students.

My Project

PLEASE HELP!! Technology provides a rich environment of learning! Any research will tell you the most critical school year for a child is Kindergarten. As a teacher, I can make or break the love for education. With that being said, due education budget cuts are class sizes continue to grow. LeapFrog Tag Learning System will provide me some time to due more small group and one on one time with my students. This reading system is an amazing technological toy. It is highly educational and helps children learn to read. It bring stories to life and builds on the reading skills children already have. Kids can read on their own by touching the special pen, which contains a lens in the tip, to the specially printed words on the pages of the special books designed for use with the reading system. The LeapFrog Tag Reading System brings books to life and challenges your child with a fun an educational way to learn!

What a great tool for a classroom to have!

This resource is another tool we can add to our tool belt. Research will tell you in today's society we must be creative and up to speed with the vast growing pace of technology. The TAG reading system will be something that every student will be able to use. This will also be a great investment because we can use this same system every year and add to our book collection!
