My students come from an economically disadvantaged area. All students in our school receive free breakfast and free lunch every day. I am so happy they have this program so they are fueled up and ready to learn!
My students come to school with open minds and open hearts ready to learn.
They are happy to be at school with their friends and they are eager to learn but lack the materials to do so.
I am creating a classroom for all learners from all backgrounds and all levels of interest. I believe every child can learn no matter what it takes. I see the possibility in of each of my students and I want to give them every opportunity to be successful.
The majority of my students are well below their age level for reading. By giving them the opportunity to use a headset, they will be able to listen to audiobooks while following reading passages at their individual level. This will increase confidence, stamina, and in time get them to where they need to be.
My students are more engaged and interested when they are able to read and listen to reading materials.
They are focused and understand words much more quickly when they are able to listen to them while they read.
Right now I have 4 headsets that are old and falling apart and 8 students who desperately need this type of device to help them succeed. All of my students will benefit from the headsets during our reading time as well as our intervention block.
