My Students

My students are hardworking and eager to learn! During the first few weeks of school,​ we learned the word "persevere" and ever since my crew has persevered, even when the learning got really tough! Kindergarten is completely different than what they were accustomed to in Pre-K, they entered the classroom shocked to see a room void of dramatic play and nap mats!

After getting over the initial shock of "what was missing," my students quickly adapted to the new routines and procedures and settled in as kindergartners.

While they often reminisce on their old classrooms they are chugging along on the kinder train, working on becoming readers and writers and critical thinkers each day. We learned to become active listeners and to engage our peers in conversation by not only listening to what they have to share, but adding on by agreeing, disagreeing, or building upon what was said.

Each day is an adventure with this bunch and I am so proud of their progress!

My Project

These four Chromebooks will ensure my students are able to visit the technology center a minimum of twice per week to meet their usage goals on Lexia and iReady. The same programs can be used during our intervention block and provide students another chance to apply what they have learned in small group or independent learning. With the additional Chromebooks, no students will have to sacrifice a "turn" and everyone will have access on designated days. Having reliable technology also makes students want to visit the technology center to challenge themselves to get better and to meet their individual challenges.
