I love my students because they inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. They help me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. They are a spirited, creative and loving bunch of kiddos.
My students love to push themselves.
They love a challenge. They need activities that foster their love of learning and keep them engaged!
I am blessed to work with these kids each day. They make me happy to come to work, and every day holds a new adventure for us to discover!
We recently received new devices for our school, specifically iPads for 4th Grade. Some software requires that students hear, as well as read, directions, passages, vocabulary words and feedback from the program. At this time we are sharing five pairs of headphones between all students which is creating some focus and disruption issues when the iPads need to be at a higher volume level.
My students are noticeably more engaged and less disruptive to their peers when able to use headphones during independent work.
In my ELA classroom, students are rotating through small groups and independent work all during class. Without headphones, it is challenging for many students to concentrate on their online assignments. The headphones provide enough buffer to help students stay focused on their own tasks.
I want to take full advantage of our technological advances this year. Interaction with current online literacy programs and updated technology will have such positive effects on students’ fluency and comprehension skills. I am asking you to help me give them their own quiet space to work by providing headphones for each student. Thank you!
