My Students

I teach 17 fifth graders from various backgrounds. Many of my students come from schools that weren’t the best fit for them. Some had problems with teachers and some had problems with other students. I have strived to create an environment in which each child feels safe and valued. My students love to learn. This being my first year teaching, I am amazed at how willing EACH of my students are to participate! (I have a few Hermione Grangers, and I LOVE IT!) I love that my students are willing and excited to participate! My students love hands-on and engaging activities! They also are like most kids their age, and LOVE technology! I hope that I can use that enthusiasm and encourage further growth with the use of technology!

My Project

These tablets will be used primarily to help with math fluency in my fifth grade classroom. Many of the students I teach struggle with their multiplication facts. I hope that by incorporating these tablets that I will be able to encourage learning multiplication through fun and engaging apps. These tablets will be used during centers and will help with reinforcing what I am teaching them. These tablets will also be useful in my English program, allowing students to read and listen to books on the tablet. I believe that these tablets will be very useful for my students in their education.
