My Students

Our class consists of two dozen uniquely energetic, creative, motivated eight and nine- year-old students. Our school is a neighborhood school, serving the families of our city since 1953. Our class and school has an amazing group of children from a fabulously diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. Unfortunately, high poverty is part of the experience for most of these young learners. Despite this, our class is motivated to learn and it is my goal to keep that motivation going for them through engaging and relevant lessons, that they can carry with them out into the world.

My Project

My students have just three older desktop computers in our classroom and even with careful planning, students are very limited to how much time each can spend on online learning activities, research projects, creative endeavors, etc. Many students do not have internet access and computers at home, so getting more exposure to technology at school can have a huge impact in helping to close the opportunity gap! I am requesting these iPads, and charging station to help open up those opportunities, while the rugged cases keep our treasures technology safe! The keyboards will help give my students an edge as they get extra practice typing their writing assignments and research projects. These students will really need those keyboarding skills this year when they take their first major state assessments! We will use these amazing devices in many ways. We will be using a variety of apps to support students with reading skills at various levels- for some students it is phonics that they need the most work with, for others it is accuracy and fluency. In math we will be able to use the browser to access things like Zearn.org, which is free and a complement to the Engage NY math curriculum. We can also use them so every student get to participate in lots of STEAM projects which these will support as well.
