My Students

My students have a love of learning and a thirst for more knowledge. With the introduction of the recent Accelerated Reader and Math program - my students now have the ability to "show what they know." Technology in the classroom would aid them in this process.

My school is a first year charter school that has adopted the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum.

They are very hands-on, and like to see and experience learning for themselves. They are active learners and enjoy Science, Social Studies, Math, and especially Reading. I have a wide range of readers in my classroom, who enjoy picture books, as well as chapter books. They are most excited when we get to do interactive activities together as a whole group or when they get to work individually on the iPad.

My Project

With the recent introduction of the Accelerated Math and Reading program my students have become very excited to use the technology we have, which currently is just one iPad from my personal home. They have been reading and meeting their goals with this one piece of technology, which makes me confident that with another iPad, they would achieve even higher goals.

The introduction of the iPad will help my students meet their Accelerated Reader and Math goals, and will also enrich their joy of reading.

Our school has adopted the STEM curriculum, and the iPad would greatly help with the technology component.
