My Students

My students are a diverse group of energetic 5- and 6-year old boys and girls who are just getting started in kindergarten! They are opening their eyes to the world and are little sponges, eager to learn all they can! Many of these students have never experienced school before and are coming in as blank slates without much background knowledge. Our school is located just outside a big city and is a literacy-based city school. We immerse our students in literature in every way possible!

My Project

My students love to utilize technology, and the technology has a wonderful impact on their learning!

With many students in a class, it can be difficult for a student to hear their own lessons on the computer.

We have weekly computer time in our class with specialized and catered lessons for each child. It is important that students be able to hear the talking during these lessons so they can perform to their greatest ability! By getting headphones for each student it will ensure a quiet working area where all students can stay attuned to what they are doing and maximize their learning!
