My Students

My school serves two hundred and eighty pre-k through fifth graders. The school is in a high poverty area. The majority of the students come from at-risk families and homes. All students at my school receive free lunch. My school is a safe place for students. They look forward to coming to school each day. Students are curious, energetic, fun, kind and hard-working. They love interacting and collaborating. Teachers and staff at my school are always looking for ways to inspire, motivate and engage all students.

My Project

I am requesting whisper phones so that my students can hear themselves read without interrupting others. Many of my students are struggling with using an appropriate voice level during guided and independent reading. These phones will help them learn how to whisper because they will hear their voice in the phone and realize when it is too loud. It will also help my students to think about the meaning of what they are reading because they will hear what they are saying and notice if it does not make sense. The whisper phones will make independent reading a much more successful time for my students.
