I have been a 1st grade teacher for several years, however for the last three years I’ve had to teach third grade. I teach in a low poverty income area where students have seen trama in their homes and community on a daily basis and yet they still come to school with a smile on their face and a will to learn.
Facing unfortunate circumstances has given them motivation to become stronger and I love them for the courage they prevail.
But to be successful they need more than courage to help them become college bound.
Guided Math is a big hit in my classroom except materials are always scarce. So I am only able to meet with one group a day instead of more. The tablets will allow my students to practice their math skills as a group and individually. I would like to have at least three centers up and running during guided math time. The tablets would be considered as one center , Teacher feature would be another and independent practice the third. This would allow me to see at least two to three groups a day instead of one. I feel the students would be able to benefit from this if they were given the materials.
