My students need an iPad Pro and Apple pen to practice practice fine motor skills and develop a love of writing.
Our students represent the economically diverse background of Eastern Kentucky. We have a wonderful group of 21 students, all of which who come from homes that want to see their children thrive and succeed. No matter if they come from the local doctor's home or the low-income housing in our area, our parents work diligently with their children, and participate in our school/home reading program to help their children make progress.
Our school district has seen a change in our student population over the last few years.
Since the fall of the coal industry, there has been a rise in poverty along with our free and reduced rate lunch population. However, the drive of students' continues to rise because of our small class size and dedication of parents and teachers. Our student population continues to show growth on state and local district assessments.
My students need the Apple iPad Pro and Apple pen to improve fine motor skills and give them the ability to practice writing skills in a fun and creative new way.
So often children come to kindergarten lacking fine motor skills.
Basic repetition of writing skills and letter formation becomes cumbersome and boring after a while. By implementing the use of the Apple iPad Pro and Pencil, students experiencing difficulty developing fine motor skills can practice in a fun and exciting way.
I would use this resource with all students to practice writing activities. I could use iPad Pro with the more advanced children to help them create their own stories. In addition to this, it would also allow me to provide remediation lessons for students struggling with handwriting and letter formation without feeling labeled as a low performing student.
