The students in my kindergarten classroom, in the south-east side of Chicago, are amazing. Listening to their conversations while they are participating in an exploration lesson proves to me, time and time again, that active learning is taking place. My students love to learn using hands-on activities, real-world experiences, and through technology. Young children are constantly learning! Kindergarten is very much a transition age in which children are learning to be independent. They are ready to explore their environment and are buzzing with ideas on how the world works. Providing them with resources to explore and experience the world is fundamental to their future.
Distance learning and teaching has its challenges. For some of our children this means having to adjust to getting ready for the day by not leaving their house. For other students, the challenges they face are challenges they face daily. Challenges like not being able to sit for the same amount of time as their classmates. Or becoming so very distracted that they cannot pay attention to a lesson.
Having a pair of wireless headphones will give a student exactly what they need to help them succeed just a little bit more by allowing them to keep listening to the lesson while not in front of the computer screen during distance learning.
Having a wireless mouse will help my student have greater ease while doing his work on a computer. Not having cumbersome wires that may get pulled out or off during the long e-learning day, is ideal for a student who has difficulty staying still. All learners have needs. Some of our learners need a little more to help them access their learning.
