My Students

The students in my kindergarten class come from an average to low-income area and have varying needs. They come from many different backgrounds and are trying to access information and language as fast as they can, so they can keep up with their counterparts. They have a love for knowledge and learning. They always try their best and have the faith to keep moving forward. They are a remarkable group of children that I admire because they try so hard.

My Project

We were fortunate enough to get iPads in our classroom this month, and we have been using the iPads a few times a week.

Unfortunately, we did not get any headphones with these devices so the classroom gets very noisy, and this makes it very difficult for my class to hear the directions given to them by the program.

The students in my class really need to hear the instructions to be successful in their learning with this program. My students are eager learners and would benefit from getting headphones to block out unnecessary noise.

Thank you for your consideration in donating to my project so we can have headphones for each child.
