I currently have thirty-six eager to learn 2nd graders. I teach reading, writing, and social studies. Our students come from a variety of different socio-economic backgrounds and cultures. Students in our classroom are either native to Florida or from India, Texas, Brazil, and Mexico.
My students are highly interested in the world around them and many times inquire about topics we are learning, wanting to dig deeper.
Our classroom community is very close and students encourage each other in their educational growth and goals.
Our classroom needs iPads due to non-reliable, desktop computers. I normally have 4-5 students at a time in my reading groups who cannot fulfill their iReady requirements for the week due to only having three desktop computers. Our current computers don't always work properly and the space is very cramped.
Having reliable iPads would allow my students to gain a deeper understanding of the world around them, improve on their literacy goals, and move around our classroom freely to fully use our flexible seating.
I would be able to put my reading groups on the iPads at the same time and wouldn't have to lose time rotating students. When students have questions/ need help I will be able to easily aid them quickly while still working with other students.
Students would be able to use a variety of other apps on the iPads to help them reach their reading and writing goals in a fun and engaging way! The cases will also help protect the iPads for long term use. Overall, having iPads within our classroom would greatly benefit my students and allow them to reach higher in their academic goals.
