My Students

In my kindergarten class, I have 22 of the sweetest kids. These babies love learning, playing, and socializing. While building a sense of community and friendship, they are also learning the alphabet, to read, and count.

I love the way they work hard daily to be successful in achieving their goals.

One of my students has autism. He like the others love technology. Each child is faced with many challenges in todays society. We love to celebrate their achievements together.

My Project

My students are growing up the digital world of touchscreens, earbuds, and iPhones. Where desktop computer are a thing of the past. Help my students fast forward from 1996 to present day.

My students will be using these tablets to play educational games that will enhance their learning experience.

Each tablet will be shared amongst my 22 students. They will each receive time to use them during class daily. The tablets will provide reading and mathematics assistants to each child. By using these tablets daily, students will be able to interact with educational games. Allow each child a better chance at being successful.
