Hello there!! I am the proud author of the new teaching blog Teachy Marie! I’m just getting started with my blogging and was so surprised and excited to be asked to write a guest post for Cachey Mama’s Classroom! I feel so very honored to help Lori out! I love her ideas and she is such a great “sharer” with all her lessons!
I am new this year to PreKinders, so I have a very extensive wish list for my seemingly bare classroom! Our school has Smart Boards on rollers that we can check out from the Library, however we don’t have enough projectors or laptops to hook up to them. So most of our Smart Boards are collecting dust in the storage room. Even when we can check one out, we have at least four cords that are up to 30 feet long, 25 kids ducked down on the floor so the projector that’s sitting on a desk can project over their heads to the smart board. Heaven forbid someone accidentally knock the desk or Smart Board and require reformatting!
So now that you know where I’m coming from, I can tell you what my number one item is on my classroom wish list!
You guessed it… the new iPad 2. I would love to be able to show my kiddos interactive stories and videos, on a screen big enough for everyone to see, while still able to hold it in my hand during our circle time! My kids love watching/listening to songs/nursery rhymes on my computer, however my computer is about 10 years out of date, and usually cannot run very long without shutting itself down. I think the iPad would help improve all aspects of my lessons as well as allowing me to teach in the 21st century! The possibilities are truly endless!
Huge thanks to Lori for asking me to be her guest for today! I’m always looking for new followers, so please stop by for some center ideas at Teachy Marie!
