My Students

Have you ever tried to read with a bunch of people talking around you? It's not easy!

My students are wonderful fourth graders who attend a low income school in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C.

Many of my students are below grade level and need a lot of practice and intervention. My school is wonderful, however tight budgets make it difficult for us to get certain materials that would really benefit our students.

My Project

My students will use the audio headphones during reading centers in order to listen to audio books on the computer. The headphones will help to keep our classroom a quiet place for learning. Even with the audio headphones, there will be some talking and chatter during different independent times. This is where the noise canceling headphones come in. Students may use these headphones when the classroom is too noisy for them to concentrate on their work.

Students need a very specific environment in which to do their best learning.

The thing is that every child needs a different type of learning environment. Some students need noise, and some need quiet. You can help my students receive both!
