Chinelli's Kids Got Talent

My students need a PA system to use to help shy students be heard when reading and to practice songs for educational plays.

My Students

Everyone is a star. Put a microphone in a student's hand and watch them blossom. Students clamor to have a turn. Suddenly, event the quietest are yearning for their voice to be heard.

Our school is one of the few naturally-occurring diverse student populations in the City.

Students come from all different backgrounds, ethnicity's, and walks of life. Together, our students form a microcosm of the world today, learning from each other and celebrating our differences.

My Project

A microphone pa system brings learning to a whole new dimension. Children will sing songs that teach the standards and share their opinions when given a turn to hold the microphone. Imagine a classroom where every student is striving at a chance to participate in the learning - that's what a microphone can do!

The English language learners can be rather quiet and hesitant to read aloud.

But put a microphone in their hand and magic happens. Reading is no longer a chore, but an exciting fun activity. And singing the standards improves access to the curriculum and breeds success.
