My Students

"We can't stop this feeling inside our BRAINS! It goes electric wavy when we make them As. All through 2nd grade, all through our school. We're flying up, no ceiling, when we're in the zone." This is exactly what you would hear from my students each morning as they are getting ready for a great day of learning!

I teach 20, 2nd graders, at a Title I school in National City (San Diego), where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Most of our schools' students are bilingual and many have moved here from another country. At our school learning goes beyond academics. We teach our students to be responsible, respectful, courteous, caring, and civic-minded people in society.

My Project

My students are excited about the opportunity to have technology in our classroom. They will be able to use the requested tablets during specialized learning in both math and literacy centers. Tablets can help students stay engaged through fun academic games, targeting to their individual needs. During math centers, students will use the tablets on applications like SplashMath or Prodigy. During literacy rotations students practice spelling on Spelling City or listening to stories on RazKids or Storyline.

Using technology will allow me to teach both literacy and math in rotations, giving me more time to work with students in smaller groups.

Not only can these tablets be used to target individual students' learning goals, they can also be utilized for research in writing, science, and social studies. Currently during writing my class is writing about expert topics. These tablets will give student's the access to websites like PBS Kids and National Geographic.
