My students walk into the classroom every day full of life and ready to learn. I always let my students know I believe in them and they can do anything they put their mind to.
We are a Title I school in a small rural district.
Despite the many hardships, my students come to school every day and are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to be the best they can be.
Having a class set of headphones would allow my students' important access to audio learning while working on online programs. Many students do not have a set of headphones due to their economic status.
We currently use an online program, i-Ready and this program has an important auditory component.
My students use i-Ready daily. In order for the program to be successful, students listen to a tutorial and complete reading and math activities at their level. As they complete the lessons successfully, they progress through the program. The goal is to close learning gaps for our students and provide advanced learning opportunities for others.
In addition, the headphones would also allow my students to access other audio learning programs like audiobooks without disturbing the other students around them.
Unfortunately, some of my students are not able to afford headphones. Having headphones available for them to use would lessen any burden they may be feeling.
