My Students

My wonderful kindergartners are between the ages of 5 and 7. For many of them, this is the first time they have entered a classroom, picked up a book, or explored music, art, and the sciences. They come to school with smiles on their faces and an eagerness to learn, but they also come from very different backgrounds.

Many of my students live in poverty, many are learning English as a second language, and many are immigrants and refugees from other countries.

Even so, my students come to school willing to take chances and grow while teaching their teacher a thing or two about how to better meet the needs of her students. They also show her how to view each day with open eyes and an open mind.

My Project

When students are finished their daily work and have a free moment, one of their options is to hop on the computer or take out a tablet. With only four classroom computers and a handful of tablets, not every student is able to use these devices every day. Students are given the chance to go on educational apps and websites to further engage their learning minds in a way that is not paper and pencil. As a teacher, I know that while they are on the computer or tablet they are playing educational games that will help increase their knowledge while the students believe they are playing games to have fun.

The tablets and charging station will allow for more students to use educational apps to expand their learning.

Charging our current tablets in our classroom involves using almost all of our electrical plugs to do so. With the charging station, I will be able to charge all of the tablets at once in one location. No more having to unplug the pencil sharpener to allow for a tablet to charge.
