My Students

My students this year are so much fun! They constantly amaze me. They are well behaved and (for the most part) try really hard each day. They can be silly when it is time to be silly and they get to work when it is time to get to work.

They are enthusiastic about school and learning.

They love art and do very well at it. They always get excited about math. I have some very good readers who enjoy reading. Their technological ability always amazes me! They love anything that I plan for them on iPads or laptops. If they could spend all day on their devices, they would!

They are kind kids who really want to do their best. They come from all different backgrounds and get along very well. I feel very fortunate to have the students that I have this year!

My Project

My students LOVE to use technology. They really excel at it and always enjoy it. They would spend all day on a laptop or iPad if I would let them. Their favorite words to hear are "Go get a laptop." They love to have stories read to them, type their spelling words, work on their math app, and play games. When we have 21 laptops reading different stories at the same time, it can get difficult for them to hear their own device and focus on their work. We need headphones to help the students focus.

If you donate to our project you will be helping many second grade students use technology to it's full capability.

They wouldn't get frustrated that they can't hear their device. They wouldn't get as distracted by what their neighbor was doing. It would really help them to use them more efficiently.
