My Students

Each day we meet on our carpet for Morning Meeting. In this meeting we discuss the daily schedule. We share our goals for the day. My goal this year is to incorporate more technology into my lessons. ~Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun!

Students in my classroom come from many diverse backgrounds.

The children's academic levels vary. We teach in a collaborative way to help reach the needs of each child. Students work mostly in small groups according to their reading and math levels. Differentiating is of utmost importance! Students learn to appreciate the difference in each other!

My Project

With an addition of two iPads in my classroom, my students would be actively engaged in project based learning, able to participate in groups and have frequent interactions and feedback. My students will be able to use the iPads in our listening center, for research on projects, and to reinforce skills taught in all curricular areas. Using this technology is an effective tool to support learning and development.

Technology is touching almost every part of our lives, our communities and our homes.

With these iPads, I will be able to integrate technology into my classroom learning (along with the two computers that I currently have in my room). These iPads will help students acquire the skills they need to survive in a complex, highly technological economy. I will be able to integrate technology across the curriculum in ways that deepen and enhance the learning process for my students.
