When the students arrived back at school this September they were in for a huge surprise. The 12:1:1 class, at our 307 site, received a class set of Kindle Fire 8 tablets from a DonorsChoose grant.
These tablets allow students to connect to Amazon’s extensive Freetime library and read hundreds of books. They are also being utilized for group lessons using apps such as Nearpod, Scratch Jr. and Kahoot.
Students are practicing the daily routines of charging their tablets, logging in and opening and downloading software. They are excited to use technology throughout the school day in a variety of ways.
What a great way to start the new school year!
