My Students

The students in my classroom are energetic, eager and love coming to school. They love being read to and solving puzzles. They enjoy working with technology and using it to learn new things. I love their passion and enthusiasm! 3rd grade is a challenging year with the start of state testing. We work all year to prepare and be ready while also learning how to navigate the technology needed to take the test. I love watching their confidence grow and how they help each other.

My Project

These earbuds and storage containers will help my students because many of the programs we use require sound. In our 3rd grade classroom, we have one to one Chromebooks for each student. Students need earbuds for their Chromebooks so they can work individually on their assignments without the distraction of what their neighbor is working on. Students work all year on learning how to navigate their Chromebook​ and use it as a tool to assist their learning. This also helps them prepare for the state test we take in May (3rd grade is the first year this test is given). Finding durable storage and earbuds has been a challenge. At the end of the year, students will be able to take home their earbuds, but I will reuse the storage containers each year.
