My students need 3 iPads and covers to prepare for kindergarten that includes both academic skill builders and soft-skills strengtheners.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to learn to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as A"typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence .
Your generous donation to our project will improve our TK classroom by building a stronger STEM student. Using the Apple iPads will change our students' lives for the better. For ePreparing my future kindergartners for school with apps that strengthen everything from counting to concentration. The majority of kindergarten teachers will tell you that soft skills like cooperation, empathy, self-awareness, and focused attention are just as essential for a successful transition to school as academics.
These activities will be used during Learning Center times throughout the day while learning together.
They will love school and feel success at an early age --- having fun while learning!
