Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My objective is to make sure my students have the technological tools to be successful in school.

My Pre-K students come from a low socio-economical background and some do not speak English.

They attend a Title I school, which means that all students receive free meals. My goal is to introduce my students to different skills and knowledge through the use of IPads. My objective is to make sure my students have the necessary technology tools to be successful.

My Project

I am requesting 3 IPads and an IPod for my classroom. Having IPads and an IPod in my Pre-K class will help in many ways. The IPads would be used as a center in my classroom. The IPads would be used for educational apps that support the learning we do in class. It would help my students who are visual learners by experiencing all the learning through the apps. It would help them practice math in an educational way. For example, students would be engage in fun activities like counting, sorting, colors, shape recognition. English learners could use the IPad to view videos which are part of their language development. Early exposure to technology is extremely important in our growing society.

Through the use of different applications on the IPad, students will increase their reading, listening, and math skills.

There are also many applications that address fundamental math skills that Pre-K students need in order to be successful. If funded for these IPads and IPod, students would take turns using it for Independent Work time during our center time.
