Technology In A 1st Grade Classroom

  1. 1. Technology in a 1st Grade Classroom Teaching a guided reading group about insects By: Katie Warning
  2. 2. Students watching a video clip about jumping spiders on a National Geographic website
  3. 3. Students looking at different pictures of insects on a Google images search. They pointed to what picture was their favorite.
  4. 4. To begin the lesson, the students wrote what they already knew about insects. Then after they watched the video, they wrote what they wanted to know/learn. After they read the book they wrote something they learned, and
  5. 5. How the Lesson Went I felt the lesson went well. Although the students watched a video, and got to point out pictures, the students didn’t really get to use the technology themselves. The school I was at lacked in technology, so I had limited things available. They were able to see insects in action, and see a better variety of pictures. This wouldn’t have been possible without technology. The technology used helped them better understand the concept, and motivated them to want to read the book. Technology got the students excited about what they were going to read. It was quick, showed them how interesting insects are, and got them interested in learning more facts about insects. It would have been better if the school had wireless internet, so we could have clicked on pictures the students liked, or explored more.
