Our school is an all-boys tuition-free K-5 public charter school where 99% of the students are living at or below the poverty line.
Our boys are charismatic, bright and determined young men who enjoy hands-on opportunities to learn, building relationships, setting goals and reaching them.
They work with integrity, trust what they know when presented with a challenge, and SHINE while they are at school. They always rise to the challenges presented to them on a daily basis.
Students learn in a variety of ways. Having access to supplemental materials allows students to work to their comfort level, and receive either a challenge or support as needed. The push to use technology in the classroom is increasing, and more traditional curriculum materials such as workbooks and textbooks are being replaced with online sites, apps, and videos. Students must learn to navigate multiple online systems in order to be successful when using supplemental materials. iReady, the Reading Wonders curriculum, Xtramath, LearnZillion, Khan Academy, and Accelerated Reader are just SOME of the resources that my students use on a daily basis. We set goals, track data and share information with parents using these sites. Each of these sites teaches students using videos, music, and visual animations. Students who cannot participate will lose the support and motivation to keep pushing themselves. So for this reason, a class set of the Panasonic over the ear headphones will be amazing and convenient, not only allowing each student to receive the academic challenge he needs, but also allowing him the privacy and comfort of receiving the instruction without distraction or interference.
