First Graders Listening and Learning Cord-Free!
My students need 5 wireless headphones to use with classroom laptop computers.
I teach at a bilingual school on the Western Slope of Colorado. We are lucky because our school district values the idea of our students becoming bilingual, bi-literate and multicultural by the 5th grade.
I love my job because each day I get to work with the world's brightest children...all of whom are second language learners.
Whether they are learning English or Spanish, they develop empathy and respect for one another along our journey. I also work at a Title I school which means that most of our students' families struggle with making "ends" meet. However, what each child lacks financially, they certainly make up with heart. You should see them learn!
Teaching 6-year-olds to use the computer is a tricky thing to do. In my classroom, I currently have 6 laptop computers for 50 wiggly students. One of the biggest issues that we encounter is trying to use our laptops and headphones with ease because one of the biggest issues is wires. Our current headphones get tangled up or the students manage to pull out the cords while listening. For these reasons, we are asking for a new set of wireless headphones for my students to use. Not having wires will get my students on the computers faster and teach them to listen with care. Having these simple computer accessories would change our day for the better!
