My Students

Greeting my class each morning usually includes multiple hugs, high fives and lots of smiles! My third-grade students love walking into our 21st-century classroom where they are challenged to go beyond what they thought was possible.

Each week, I strive to challenge these 8 and 9-year-olds to think deeper and gain knowledge through hands-on learning activities.

They come to school each day ready to meet the challenge head on! While some students may struggle more than others, they are encouraged and guided along the path that leads to success!

My Project

The Qball throwable wireless microphone is perfect for my classroom! There are many factors that affects a student's ability to hear, fans, to classroom acoustics and layout can impact their ability to listen. Staying on task during a lesson can be an equal challenge for my students that have ADHD. The Qball will allow my students the opportunity to work on verbal skills, non-verbal communication, gross motor skills, and is a tool to help students stay focused on the learning experience.

The Qball throwable wireless microphone will help manage classroom discussions and provide an engaging experience for my ADHD students.

Throwing the microphone will increase engagement by allowing my students to move when answering questions, while amplifying sound for other students to easily hear, and just get to have fun of catching and throwing a ball in class!
