TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students 12 over the ear headphones to enhance their learning when using technology.
In our class we are a family, not your average family, but a family who cares, where everyone matter and they are always greeted with a warm smile, a fist bump and a hug. Everything is changing, always moving, but in my class there is stability. I teach third grade math to 60 students that rotate throughout the day and despite the large amount of students I love what I do. We are a title one school and most of the students are from a low socioeconomic background. My students have the desire to learn, but do not have the resources or funds available to expose them to certain experiences or opportunities. As their teacher, I feel it is my responsibility to provide them with the resources and experiences they deserve.
"Children who are loved at home come to school to learn; children who are not come to school to be loved."
Urban school students deal with so much more than your average student. They tend to have different family structures, which leaves their families struggling to make ends meet.
My third-grade students need durable headphones for technology support in the classroom. Throughout the week, they go on various math websites for extra math support. I have tried purchasing inexpensive headphones for them in the past, but because of frequent use, the headphones break within a month or so. It has become an innumerable burden on my family and I, due to purchasing countless amounts of headphones in all my years of teaching. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. We work on several math programs that challenge students on different levels such as IReady, Khan Academy, Xtra Math and etc. Every day I take great delight when my students grasp old and new content. It brings me much joy watching my scholars' faces glow like a lightbulb when they are able to hear and work on their technology. I love to teach, however, one of my biggest struggles is “if my students can hear me?” It has become a big issue in my class when scholars have to share headphones, mute their computer when they already have issues with reading, and interrupt the class with loud computers. My classroom is interactive with various forms of technology which includes five kindle tablets and eight Chromebooks. My students desperately need these headphones to enhance their digital learning. The problem is my scholars are unable to hear my lessons while the rest of the class is distracted by all the other competing noises. The audio from the tablet, computer, and my voice create a vortex of noise that makes learning and instruction difficult. I hope this project is fully funded to create a quiet and successful environment with your help.
