My Students

As a teacher in a low-income district, my main focus for my students is to give them the best learning environment possible. Many of the students in our school get free lunch and receive free school supplies from the local community. I want my students to come to a classroom that fosters learning. We have some of the brightest children in our school system and I just want to give them the best education possible no matter their background. Every child deserves the best and every child is able to learn!

My Project

My students want some digital storytelling activities for the classroom. They are ready to learn how to write so that they can tell their stories. The children will be able to use these materials so that they can be able to tell stories their friends.

The children will love being able to use the new tablet to start writing their stories and tell their stories through technology to learn through imagination.

Students will enjoy playing with the tabletop light panel is where they can use the tracing tiles that will help them to write a story. Next, students will use the headphones and storage for listening to stories on CDs. Students enjoy using the listening station to listen to the stories. Then the camera will allow students to record themselves retelling the story that they have learned to read and write. Finally, students will use the books so that they can listen to them on CD and they will get an idea of how to make stories. All the materials will help students to tell a story.
