Good News! English Language Learners (ELLs) using iPads

During the school year, 2011-2012, the 3rd Grade, 4th Grade and 5th Grade ESL Teachers wrote a proposal to get iPads to teach ESL students. We received a total of 10 iPads for the students and three iPads for their teachers. The teachers had to collect data and show results to continue using the iPads the next school year. We were very pleased to see how the students improved their math vocabulary and became very engaged in their tasks. 

The children did different activities to culminate their work this school year. The third graders wrote math stories using the Story Maker App. The fifth graders created Power Point Presentations using information that thay researched on line and the fourth graders were very busy at the end of the year with their opera, Gandhi. They all did a great job! Take a look!
