My Students

I teach in a first grade Chinese bilingual ICT class. All 25 of my students are AMAZING, creative and fearless. They have a great love of literacy and math, but are especially passionate about technology.

They are English Language Learners with and without special needs who rise to any kind of challenge presented to them.

We learn together in a large PreK-5 school that does the best it can for our highly impoverished population. Our school is a family of teachers, administrators, and support staff that truly care about one another and work together to deliver the best for each and every one of our students. We are committed to providing an innovative curriculum to promote creative and independent thinking.

My Project

My first graders are in need of 8 quality headphones to use during reading and writing periods. We are very lucky to have 8 iPads to use, but without quality headphones it can become very noisy.

This project will make a difference for all of my first graders because they will be able to use the iPads to read, listen to, and do research independently and quietly.

Our current earbuds no longer work. Those earbuds broke easily, and did not fit my students' small ears well. Students use very educational and engaging apps such as Epic and Raz-Kids to read, listen to, do research, and improve their overall reading and writing skills. The problem is that the noise from the iPad apps can be very distracting to little learners.

The apps are tailored to each individual student’s needs and abilities. This means that the children are on different levels and different books. The sounds compete for their attention and can be distracting, so we need quality headphones for quiet learning. The gentle wipes will help keep the headphones sanitary and available to use for everyone in the class and the years to come.

We would really appreciate your help!
