Can You Make It Louder? We Can't Hear!

My students need this higher quality Sony Wireless sound system when viewing and listening to educational videos within the classroom.

My Students

Ensuring that things run smoothly is every teachers job, and providing technology that promote creativity and joyful learning is every teacher's passion. We are asking for technology updates for how we watch and listen to instructional and educational videos within our classroom.

My students are a well-rounded group of fourth graders who attend school in a residential neighborhood in a major metropolitan California city.

Approximately half of our school's population of students participate in the reduced or free lunch program. Many students return to apartments and shared, multi-generation households after school. Our classroom has been structured to be a safe, comfortable and accepting place for them to focus and concentrate on their academic success.

My Project

Our classroom is as dynamic as the students that fill it. We have taken great steps toward allowing students access to technology. With this Sony wireless speaker system, students from all parts of the classroom will be able to accurately, and without struggle, hear the videos as presented at the front of the room. Currently, Many students have a hard time hearing the sound from our speaker system. With this Sony wireless speaker system, students will have the opportunity to listen with ease and direct their attention towards analyzing what's being presented.

With your support, we gain additional resources that keep our students busy, creative, and joyous.

While we have been off to a great start this year, by sending your donation, you will ensure that this Sony wireless speaker system keeps our class focused, prepared, and motivated to continue and finish strong in fourth grade.
