I teach in a Title I school where everyone receives free breakfast and lunch. We have one of the highest percentages of ELL in the district, despite all of this our school is high performing and full of amazing teachers who set high expectations for our kids.
Our school is a tight knit family.
Our students love to learn and the whole school is there to support them in whatever they need to succeed. Students feel safe and know that they are cared about by our staff as well as other students.
Our school is a Spanish immersion school. Our students spend half of their day in English and the other half in Spanish. Kindergarten - sixth grade they receive all math and science instruction in Spanish.
The past few years our students have come to fourth grade with a deficit in Math learning. They are typically two years behind grade level. We use our Kindle Fires to practice individual math skills to help each and every student fill the gaps that they have so they can be more successful in math. They also use these for math sites that help us prepare for state testing make us stronger in our math fluency and review our new fourth grade state testing.
I have two groups of students and it is necessary to have a place to keep these Kindles safe and charging to that we are ready for the both classes to be able to use them on a daily basis.
We have run out of places in the room to make sure all kindles can be charged. This will also allow my partner teacher to use these as well for all of our students because it will be so much easier to transport the Kindles to her classroom with the use of the cart.
