My students live in a reservation town. The student population at our school includes migrant students, children of farmworkers, children of meatpacking workers, Native American children, and all in a very small town.
My classroom contains upper elementary students.
I have four students who have special needs ranging from autism to developmental delay. I have three students who take medication for Attention Deficit Disorder and need special resources to help them stay focused and successful. There are many levels of English language learners. Most kids can speak English, but many struggle to learn important vocabulary. They live in an economically depressed area. They need positive engineering experiences to dream of a better future.
Well made headphones can last through the classroom year and into the next. Right now, kids are turning the audio down very low for their online lessons and assessments. It is difficult to customize the volume when you can hear what your neighbor is working on.
Students use headphones for differentiated lessons.
Each lesson is tailored to meet the need of each child in reading and math. One kid may need to relearn basic math skills. Another student may need to work on higher grade level. Kids don't want to appear different to their peers. Differentiated lessons are a must.
