My students are the most creative and preserveing little people I know. 1/3 of the population come from a local shelter and the rest from the surrounding low socioeconomic area. Although my students must walk to school surrounded by drugs, trash, stray dogs, and gang violence, they still find a way to make it. They come to school eager and ready to learn. They make me laugh daily and cry just to see how kind some of them are to their peers. Being an alumni of this school, I know first hand the struggles they face, which is why I am so proud of the things they do accomplish. My Reading Wizards are magical, they just need someone to believe in them.
We all know that students learn better when the content given is not only effective but also engaging. Having tablets will allow our students to grow in reading and writing. Students will be able to participate in Technology Mobile Station and not be static in the classroom. A classroom with students moving and discussing is a classroom where learning is taking place. Students will use the tablets for daily reading intervention on Imagine Learning, a program which meets students on their level and help them move forward through fun and challenging activities. The tablets will also be used for Quizizz, a fun framework where students can challenge each other or the teacher for mastery of taught TEKS. Lastly the students will use tablets to enhance their research projects in class. By donating to this project you are not only giving my Reading Wizards a huge boost of needed reading intervention but also allowing them to be actively engaged in their own learning.
