Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

My goal is to have a complete literacy center using iPads. It has been hard using computers during literacy center time. Sometimes the eight year old computers are just not enough to support Istation or St Math. Nowadays technology is such an important part of learning. The more practice students get the more comfortable they will be in the future. Having these iPads will ensure higher achievement for my students in reading and math.

Goal

My goal is to have a complete literacy center using iPads. It has been hard using computers during literacy center time. Sometimes the eight year old computers are just not enough to support Istation or St Math. Nowadays technology is such an important part of learning. The more practice students get the more comfortable they will be in the future. Having these iPads will ensure higher achievement for my students in reading and math. 

 

What will be done with my students

We'll be using these Apple iPad mini 2 tablets for a classroom literacy center. During our reading block I work with small groups according to their reading levels. As I am working, the students rotate to different literacy centers and work independently.  

 

Benefits to my students

Many of the students do not get to work on computers at home, which means Istation is only available at school.

This is a required literacy program in our county. I will also use the iPads for St Math during math time while I am working with small groups. This is also a required program in our county.

Your donation will help provide all my students with access to the all kinds of programs. I chose iPads because there are apps that will cater to the students' needs and engage the students. IPads are cost effective and portable. The touch technology lets students use their fingertips which is beneficial to young students.
 

 

Describe the Students

I teach at a Title I school in Florida where all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students receive backpack food on Friday just to make sure they have something to eat before the next week. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They LOVE to be in school because they want to learn all they can before becoming first graders.

My students walk into our classroom everyday full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.

The mix of students is very diverse. Some walk into the classroom knowing their letters and some have no knowledge of letters at all. I am always trying to find new ways to keep my students engaged. I want them to know that there are many ways to learn and that they can do anything.
