Headphones for Small Ears

My students need 26 sets of headphones. We do a lot of online learning with iPads or laptops, and most earbuds are made for adults.

My Students

Our school has students from varying backgrounds, including military-connected students and students whose parents work for our local university. The students in my class strive for excellence. We are a family. We care about one another and continually make an effort to improve in all aspects.

My class consists of 20 amazing students.

Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. They all have a win-win attitude and do their personal best to contribute to our classroom community.

My Project

Our school is fortunate to have a lot of technology available for us to use. Our class does a lot of online learning using iPads or laptops. Many students bring earbuds at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, earbuds are typically made for adult ears, and many of my students find them to be uncomfortable. This is why my students need headphones that are designed for children.

From taking spelling tests to practicing math facts, and several activities in between, we would use these headphones multiple times daily.

By donating to our project, you will help keep students comfortable. Not only will this improve and increase student attention and focus, but it will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
