Headphones for Learning

Help me give my students headphones to support their personalized learning. Students need to be able to hear each letter and sound in our phonics programs with reliable resources.

My Students

I have a group of 30 creative, friendly, hard-working, and silly first graders. In class, we collaborate on engineering projects, partner reading, and making beautiful art projects.

My first graders always have a growth mindset and stick to the motto, "mistakes are how we grow!" I am dedicated to creating a personalized learning environment for my students where every child feels successful

We work to create a classroom environment where everyone feels safe and welcome. The care and empathy my students show for one another never ceases to amaze me.

My Project

As part of our personalized learning, students use Chromebooks and headphones for online applications. Most headphones that we have are always tangled, are too big, or only work out of one ear. That is why I chose the Noot Headphones: the cords won't tangle, the size is adjustable to fit a child's head, and they can be folded for easy storage.

In order to have successful small group instruction with such a large class of first graders, I am focusing on teaching my students how to be independent.

One of our stations usually involves technology, and students need access to headphones to use our online programs.
