My Students

I have the honor of teaching 27 kindergartners. The students in my class come from circumstances that are less than ideal. Some of my students are in foster homes, shelters, or living with others due to lack of resources. The majority of my students live with their single mothers and many of my students have fathers that are incarcerated. While these students have been exposed to domestic violence, drug use and neglect, they come to school with smiles on their faces, ready to learn.

Although my students live lives that are full of challenges, they are smart and excited about learning.

When they walk through the door in the morning it's almost as if all those obstacles are left outside. They have learned so much this year and have grown as readers, writers and mathematicians. While I am proud of their academic accomplishments I am especially proud of their growth behaviorally and socially.

My Project

These Fire 7 Tablets will give my students access to technology which will support what is being taught in the classroom. Throughout the day my students have several opportunities to work in small groups or centers and use the Fire Tablets. the headphones, screen protectors, and cases will keep our Fire Tablets safe.

Coloring a paper is no longer sufficient in mastering current learning standards for my students.

They need to be exposed to a variety of resources including technology so they can be prepared to succeed throughout their life. These tablets will also support my special needs students. I think these tablets will also greatly improve my students vocabulary through purposeful usage.
