What, I'm Learning?

My students need 2 Apple iPad Mini tablets and protective cases for our literacy centers.

My Students

"My computer is frozen Mrs. Ingram!" This is something I hear daily. While working in small groups with some students others are to be playing learning games but our computers continually freeze leaving students unable to be productive.

I teach in a rural community in a K-2 school.

We have 8 classrooms of kindergarten students. I have 20 students. Our school has approximately 60% of our students on the free/reduced lunch program. I have several students in my class who also benefit from the Dare to Care food program to ensure they have food to eat over the weekend while we are not at school.

My Project

With 20 students in my classroom on various academic levels, working in small groups is imperative. During our literacy session each day I work with small groups of students while the other kids in my class work at literacy centers. iPad mini tablets with protective cases would allow those students to productively play learning games; versus our current computers that commonly freeze up, leaving students having to abandon their center.

Technology is a huge parts of kids' lives today.

Playing games is a wonderful way for students to learn without even realizing what they are doing. There are so many educational apps available and many can be customized to incorporate our specific sight words or skills we are working on.
