I need a planner, blue tooth headphones, and Rosetta Stone for Spanish language learning.
My students are K-8 students from an urban district. Our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is served in the classroom and students do not switch classrooms much at the younger grades. Most of my students are from Spanish speaking households.
My students need to be active and moving while learning.
They love working with technology. Students come to me when they cannot figure out what to do on the computer, but I also go to them when I cannot figure out today's latest technology. I love being able to provide technology integration to a 1 to 1 school, giving students a different idea of how technology is actually replacing the pen and paper.
It is very frustrating as a teacher not to be able to fully communicate with my students. My students come to me to learn technology and I would like to be able to use technology to communicate and learn from and with them. For that reason, I am asking for blue tooth Apple Ear Pods to use in conjunction with my iPad/iPhone and take Spanish courses. I am also asking for a 12-month subscription to an online Spanish course.
It is frustrating for me when I cannot understand my students, but I am sure it is as frustrating to my students when they cannot be understood.
Learning to communicate in my students' native language will help me reach them and teach them my content. I am also asking for a planner to help me stay on track.
