My Students

We have a Title I school with more than 1,000 students from a very low income families, which 100% of them received free breakfast and lunch. my class is a third grade bilingual class with students form different countries of Latino-america.

Everyday my students are looking for new ways to learn and applying those experiences to their daily life.

In order for them to have the same learning opportunities we are looking for new technology tools to help them succeed in school and for their rest of their life.

My Project

My students will use the new touch screen technology to navigate Web pages, write and upload content and improved their reading fluency and comprehension by using different web base inspiring e-learning websites like Istation and Learning A-Z, where students will use it every day to read stories and answer comprehension questions.
