My Students

My 24 fourth grade students are bright, full of life, and eager to achieve. I want to provide my kiddos with opportunities to share their voice and opinions in a safe space within our classroom. I have a wide range of students with different cultural backgrounds, special needs, and English language learners. They are all special in their own way and just need someone to guide them in life.

I want my students to know their voice matters and ensure everyone's voice and words are heard within my classroom.

I would love this tool to enhance student engagement during classroom discussions. Also, this would allow my more shy students the opportunity to shine!

My Project

The wireless microphone called the Qball will help ensure that every voice is heard and matters in my classroom. This tool would build positive classroom community.

This tool would be awesome to use to encourage students to speak up and share their opinions and comments during classroom discussions.

They can throw the ball across the room, and this would definitely add more engagement in the classroom. I can only imagine seeing their excited faces when we use this. This is great for my kids who are more shy and soft spoken.
