My Students

My first-grade elementary students are a genuinely diverse community. Not only do the students come from varying ethnic backgrounds and places within (and without) the United States, but the life experiences that they’ve had are incredibly unique.

With that being said, I want to provide that same experience in my classroom each and every day.

I have fourteen students and they love getting on the computer to play interactive educational games and reading books. The materials I am asking for will help them each and every day.

My Project

Everyday we use some form of technology in the classroom. Therefore, these Flex phones will be great for the students to use and they can not easily be destroyed. They are nearly indestructible, made from a single piece of EVA foam. Eva foam is safe, non-toxic, BPA-free, soft and an extremely flexible material. Best of 2015 scholastic teacher's pick Flex-Phones are certified for all major USA and International child safety testing standards. We are extremely proud that they have been awarded the scholastic teacher's pick as "the best of 2015". They are recommended for children ages 3 and up. Flex-Phones deliver high quality sound that will never exceed 85 decibels, ensuring young developing ears are protected.
