My Students

I have a classroom full of second graders who are full of energy and eager to learn, but have a hard time staying focused and engaged! My students are from a rural community, and some are below grade level. Most do not have much, but they are appreciative of what they do have! Most families are working families and do not have the time to give them the experiences they need to connect with standards. These projects will provide them with experiences they are lacking.

My Project

My school went one to one with iPads this year!!! We love using them throughout our day! However, we need a class set of headphones so that all students can listen to books read aloud, play math and reading games quietly and free from distractions.

My students love listening to books read aloud and play interactive reading and math games.

They also enjoy scanning QR codes and conducting research on a variety of topics. I want students to be able to listen and work on their iPad at their leisure. My students need and deserve these headphones to be successful!
