My Project

During small group instruction and our morning intervention block, my students go on i-Ready math and reading intervention to practice skills at their individual levels. This can create quite a noisy classroom!

Headphones will enable my students to stay focused on what they are working on without the distractions of the noises around them.

We often use chromebooks for intervention, research, and to extend learning. This often includes the use of videos and music. Having headphones in our classroom will help students to be more engaged in their learning. Also, without all of the extra noise and distractions from the computers, the other students will be able to concentrate more on their independent work.
