Our school is nestled in Buda, Texas right outside of Austin. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies greatly.
We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!
We have one student computer in our classroom and in this day and age, technology is so important in education.
My students are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to be their 4th grade teacher!
There are many things we use technology for in the classroom, but are limited due to the lack of computers in our room. Currently, we only have one classroom computer that all 19 students share. We use a reading program called Reading Plus, students take AR quizzes, and I would love to incorporate Google Classroom into our curriculum. I would also love to have the ability to use Kahoot and/or Quizzizz to create a fun way to check for understanding. We live in a tech savvy world and it's important for our students to learn how to navigate their way through this day and age through incorporating technology into our curriculum. Throughout the year we use computers to conduct research. Every year our 4th graders do a big project about Texas Native American Tribes. They research various things about the tribe and create a large mural from the information they find online. Then students display their murals in a showcase for the entire school. Kinder - 5th grade gets a live history lesson from our 4th graders about Native American Tribes.
