I am the proud teacher of a spunky and vivacious group of third, fourth, and fifth grade students. Our day is usually jammed pack with students completing reading and writing exercises, as well as, completing daily reading fluency drills. Our favorite part of the day is writing Text Dependent Analysis (TDA) responses and creative writing activities.
I teach remedial reading at a small, rural Title I school where 100% of our students participate in the free and reduced breakfast and lunch program.
My students have a passion for writing and often look forward to seeing their work posted on our class bulletin board. Our daily writing assignments are written in their journals. Final drafts are handwritten on regular lined paper.
I would like to further incorporate technology into my classroom by purchasing resources such as: a printer, an Amazon Echo Dot, and a mouse for each Chromebook. The resources will be used to properly display student writing, as well as, assist with literacy projects and activities.
First, I would like to be able to print larger samples of my students' TDA responses, creative writing assignments, and poetry.
I believe this will give them a sense of pride and a feeling of great accomplishment when they see their work outside the classroom or on the school's "Write Stuff" board.
Second, I would like to introduce Alexa to our classroom by having her support our language arts program by assisting students with their spelling, listening comprehension practice, and vocabulary builders.
Finally, I would like each student to have a wireless mouse as they use their Chromebooks to complete reading assessments and writing assignments.
