Hanging On To Every Word

My students need 25 headphones to use when on Istation. The students will be able to focus and hear their individualized instruction without disturbing their classmates.

My Students

Teaching a balanced literacy program is essential for the growth of the child. All students are not alike and progress at different rates. Istation plays a vital role in helping our students succeed at reading. The headphones will allow our students to effectively use the Istation program.

My students are eager to learn and always try their best.

They enjoy reading and have several opportunities every day to read for pleasure. When our school received chrome books, the students could not wait to get on the Istation program. They are provided rigorous instruction and engagement that is fun and on their reading level. The headphones would help them to continue to enjoy the Istation program without the distractions.

My Project

The students have chrome books that they are able to use in the classroom. The reading program that they use is Istation and it is a very good program. The sounds and animation really keep them engaged in learning reading concepts. In order for the students to hear and participate in the activities effectively, the volume on the chrome books has to be up. When the class is on the chrome books at the same time, the noise level is too distracting to focus. The headphones are a perfect way to ensure that each student has the opportunity to hear and be successful on the Istation program.

As educators, we are charged with providing instruction to help students become independent readers at the onset of their educational experience.

Istation is a computer based program that not only provides assessments, but provides interventions, development, and enrichment activities for all students. That being said, we are in need of 25 headphones for students to receive the necessary interventions. We appreciate your consideration and would love your support.
