Help me give my students heavy duty headphones to use with my students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students attend a Title I school where our poverty rate is approximately 97% with only 36% of our students starting and ending the year with us. Our school provides free breakfast, snack, and lunch to every student.
Our building is old, and our furniture and resources are dated.
We are trying to update as much as we can to keep the classroom looking fresh so students will be proud of their work space and take pride in their work.
We are in year three of launching Writer's Workshop and in year two of Reading Workshop. We learned a lot about managing these amazing teaching models that inspires students to read and write in ways they never thought possible.
My first grade classroom is a busy place full of learning, exploring, and playing. Students are always engaged in whole group mini lessons, small group lessons, and independent practice.
As we move toward 1:1 Technology, I have students accessing activities on iPads through QR codes, bookmarks, and various apps.
Students regularly use iReady and Zearn for math, PebbleGo for research, and code.org for computer science/computer coding.
Having good quality, heavy duty headphones to help students comfortably access and engage with content on iPads is very important. This year we have sampled a variety of headphones/earbuds to see what worked the best for us. We found earbuds are not comfortable and don't work well with little ears. Plastic headphones are durable but they are not comfortable. And headphones with foam coverings don't last very long. We've tested the headphones we are asking for funding for and they are the best we've found.
