My Students

My classroom makes up one of 42 classrooms (K-5) in a school that serves over 750 students K-5. Of our population, all the students who attend our school receive free and reduced-price lunch. We also start our days serving breakfast in the classrooms.

It is one of the largest elementary schools in our district and has a high population of students living in poverty.

We are a low-performing school that is fighting to challenge our students in any way possible. We are fighting every day to close the achievement gap, but it's hard when students don't have their most basic of needs.

Some students look forward to coming to school just to get away from their home environments and we, as teachers, try to make the most out of what materials we have. We as a school strive to meet the needs of our students as well as make a fun and engaging environment for each and every child.

My Project

I am asking for 2 iPads and protective cases. We are requesting these so that students will be able to complete word work activities, use multiplication/division flash card apps, use with our schools sphero sets, use them for nearpod lessons, submit work onto the seesaw app, bring drawings alive through the chatterpix app, as well other educational apps that our school provides.

Students utilize a lot of time in centers within the classroom and it is my goal to create an interactive technology center where students are able to explore, create and invent.

Our school does have one Chromebook cart per grade level. We also do have access as a school to a few Chromebook and iPad carts, although it sometimes is very difficult to find a time when the carts are available for use due to others also trying to check them out. I am trying to create a classroom that is 1 to 1 for technology access for students. This would allow students to be engaged and we could allow our centers to integrate more technology into the classroom.

Many of my students dread the usual seat work as many students do. Although when I give them assignment where they can create their own google presentation or make a video teaching how to solve a particular problem, this allows them not only to expand their learning of a specific concept but also helps improve computer literacy. I have a few reluctantly writers and Ipads are great for students to record themselves talking about their writing. Students then are able to copy down what they just said without having the hesitation to write it as they think and lose their train of thought.
