My Students

My students are very energetic and artistic and always looking for ways of advancement in their learning disabilities in all areas of their academic and social skills.

We look forward with excitement each day to have new ideas of creativity in the classroom and in their specials including art, music, gym and library.

Writing is a special part of their learning enviroment to add and become successful scholars in the educational process. We look forward on a daily basis to increasing their learning enviroment.

My Project

Computers make the learning process a lot more simple and efficient, giving students access to tools and methods of communication unavailable offline. Students are now capable of checking their grades or lesson plans online and can also communicate with the teachers via email or educational platforms. Students can also send work to their teachers from these applications in the school hours.

With these requested ten Amazon Fire 7 tablet we, as a group, can read formatted books and magazines in color.

Also, reading can be in large print for those students struggling with vision disadvantages. We are always on the lookout for ways to help these struggling readers learn to find success and enjoy reading.

When one looks at how technology has changed education over the past decade, one can't help but be blown away by the sheer number of applications for educators with tablet that have absolutely flooded the electronic educational community and the classrooms. One of the toughest obstacles teachers face is planning reading for their students. We all know that organizing multiple groups at different reading levels can be challenging. It is also hard to find the right books for those students who may not have an interest in reading at all. I, as a teacher, can set up user accounts for each student and arrange them into one or more groups, such as a specific class or grade level. I can also set limits on what students can do with the devices.

Resources are released every month that even the most plugged-in educator would have twenty-four hour primary go to sources. We hope that we can utilize as many as possible resources to stay in our daily curriculum by organized subjects such as ABC mouse, Spelling City, myON, Clever, and XtraMath, just to name a few that we use in the classroom.
