My Students

My second graders are creative and active. They love to engage in learning and enhance their experiences through questioning and curiosity. They come to school ready and prepared to SOAR. Everyday they are building new skills through new challenges and engagement opportunities.

My Project

The set of headphones I am requesting will instantly meet the needs of all my students in the classroom. These headphones will allow each student an opportunity to listen to their device without disrupting others. Students use their devices daily, many without headphones. These headphones will allow students to be able to hear and focus on their device without hearing the sounds of other devices nearby. In 2nd grade, students need optimal opportunities to hear sounds and phonemes in order to apply the phonological awareness and decoding/encoding skills they need to further develop their reading and comprehension.
