Ms. Montgomery from Mountain View CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones for Little Ears!

Help me give my students headphones! We try to use technology regularly in the classroom. Our district provides access programs that individualize content to what each student needs. Headphones help them access these tools!

My Students

I teach Kindergarten in Mountain View, California. My students are curious, inquisitive, creative, imaginative, and funny. My goal as a teacher is to help them develop a love of school and a love of learning. As a new teacher, I am constantly trying to improve my instructional practices to best support my students in developing foundational knowledge and skills.

My students have diverse backgrounds as well as a wide range of academic, social, and emotional needs.

Every day is a challenge to support struggling students while still challenging others. I want to help every student grow regardless of where they are academically.

My Project

Technological literacy is a MUST in today's world! My students use online programs that target the individual needs in pre-reading skills and math concepts. These programs and great resources, but are also tons of fun for the kids!

Headphones are invaluable when there are twenty-five devices loudly blasting exciting learning activities.

We use devices and headphones during our weekly literacy center rotations, weekly math tech explorations, and regular extension opportunities. Not only do these tools help students access fantastic online programs, they also help them develop the skills they need to become technologically literate. Students practice setting up their headphones, navigating programs, and troubleshooting tech problems. Please help my students become independent tech users!
