My Students

I teach in an extremely diverse, low income, multicultural learning community (over 80 percent of our students are English Language Learners) that is also affected by homelessness. My classroom is full of 3rd and fourth grade dual language students that are eager to learn. My students are in a very rigorous learning environment where they are learning to be bilingual and bicultural in both English and Spanish.

Third and fourth graders are highly motivated to succeed, I want to add the opportunity to use computers and develop research and typing skills within the classroom to help prepare them for 21st century living.

Not only will the computers help the students be successful in our technology age for their future, but they also need to take their standardized tests called the MCAS on them and need to be prepared knowing how to navigate the testing structure on the computer.

My Project

Students will use the laptops to research, gain typing skills, and math games reinforcements. Students will learn how to navigate a computer, type correctly, practice speaking into the microphone in order to prepare for MCAS and English Language Learning standardized assessments.

Students will be engaged through technology to reinforce learning goals and research to become successful learners.

Students will type research reports, essays, and listen to reading to build their language skills. Students will play engaging math games, view songs, and videos to practice and reinforce math concepts. Finally, students will practice the testing format in order to be prepared for the standardized testing in the spring.
