Headphone Help!

My students need 26 headphones to use technology we already have in our classroom.

My Students

Technology is engaging and fun! But it can be LOUD!

My fantastic students come from a high poverty area.

I also have 11 students out of 20 who did not speak English in their household. Our school is very large and overcrowded - we are in a mobile classroom, which lets in a lot of outside noise! When other classes are playing outside, workers are driving through our campus AND iPads are loudly engaging my students, other students can't focus. Headphones will help our situation be more bearable.

My Project

Headphones will enable my six year olds to better use technology and FOCUS in on their work. When some students are using computers, Tag readers and iPads, other students are reading independently. Potentially, 12 students will be using technology while 8 others are reading silently. In order to maintain a reading environment, we need headphones!

Teaching my first graders to work independently requires a certain level of noise (well, a certain level of quiet, really!).

Headphones will enable short attention spans to lengthen, and will help my non readers become reading leaders!
