Children are wonderful yet complicated little humans. They have strengths and weaknesses. They learn in different ways. We are fortunate to have iPads for each student.
Our school is a close-knit rural Title I school in which over 75% of students receive free lunch.
My students love school and are eager to learn every day. Some of my students perform below grade level and receive additional supports and interventions in reading and math, so finding ways to help them is important. Using iPads to differentiate learning is a great help.
We use iPads to record work, practice math facts, read books, and play learning games. Having functional iPads saves time each day.
Mastering our math facts to 10 in first grade is an important academic standard, yet all students are at a different level.
Using a program like Reflex Math allows each student to work at his/her own pace.
We use the Seesaw application to record our writing. I can check the writing without collecting each child's journal. The Epic Books app is great for setting up collections of book about the same theme. I can assign different collections to children based on their own level of reading.
