Super Students Need Smart Technology For Reading And Math
My students need an Apple iPad mini and protective case to be able to access the Super Kids Reading application that goes along with our Super Kids Reading curriculum.
How can I teach 21st century skills unless I expose my students to 21st century technology? We do not have student computers in our class and this tablet computer is the only brand that will allow them access to our Super Kids Reading Application.
I am so grateful to teach this wonderful group of kindergarteners who recently just donated the most canned goods to help a local food pantry, even though our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch.
They love to help others and they love to learn. They are enjoying their newly acquired skill in blending sounds and decoding words to read simple sentences. They also are excited they can create patterns, count to 100, and add and identify 2D and 3D shapes.
They are looking forward to learning more about subtraction. Our school is labeled high poverty, but parents truly value education as the way to overcome it. We want all students to be highly successful in literacy and numeracy as well as technology.
There is a minimum of three times a day that we divide into small groups. I work with three students at a time while the rest rotate to centers that enrich them or remediate them in language arts, math, science and social studies concepts that I have taught. We would like the tablet computer to be a technology center the students would take turns rotating to, so they can use the Super Kids application that reinforces what they are learning for the week in reading, and during math use it to practice problem solving, subtraction, telling time, etc.
The only way we can access the Super Kids Reading application is via an Apple tablet, so having one will help the kids become technologically savvy, proficient in skills introduced for the week and able to practice keyboarding and math concepts.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
