My class is so well behaved and respectful! They listen, follow directions, and work hard. This is my first year teaching fifth grade. I have taught younger grades for the past 20 years. I was very nervous to start teaching in the older grades, because I was worried about behavior and discipline problems. This class proved me wrong. They make teaching easy. I have been so impressed with their behavior!
My fifth graders have been working hard in all subjects, especially math, reading, and writing.
We have an aggressive curriculum that challenges them to meet their goals and the grade level criteria. In addition to working hard academically, we work hard to help students be socially aware and respectful to all students. I am proud to be the teacher of such an awesome class!
Students can verbally explain their thinking using the headphones. This will help teachers know how to help students.
Students’ use of technology has increased because of the impacts of Coronavirus.
Having quality headphones will allow students to use their devices to show their understanding, to create videos explaining their thinking, and communicate better while students are remote learning.
Teachers can make audio directions so that younger students can be independent so that the teacher can work with small groups of students at their level.
Teachers can also create screencasts to model for their students. The headphones will help create better audio quality for videos.
