Headphones for Success

My students need 25 headphones to be successful in the classroom. Many of our projects and daily activities consist of listening to videos and text.

My Students

Were you ever trying to focus in school and unable to based on others in the classroom? This happens to my students daily when they are trying to watch educational videos or practice their reading. When 20 students are playing videos at the same time without headphones, it's hard to focus!

My students are hardworking, sweet, and excited about learning.

My classroom consists of 20 students, half of which are in the ESOL program (English as a Second Language). Since many of them are still mastering how to read and write in English, headphones are essential for their success.

My Project

Each of my students has a personal learning device provided by the district. These devices are extremely helpful in their learning. We use our personal devices to do interactive educational games, watch videos related to what we are learning, and use reading programs that help progress our reading goals and skills. If my kids had headphones, they would be able to focus in on their devices easier instead of hearing all the other sounds in the classroom. I believe if they are able to focus better, they will be more successful.

These donations will improve my classroom environment tremendously by helping my students get the audio support they need to learn and grow.

Not only will it help each individual student, but it will also help classroom relationships by minimizing conflicts over sharing headphones.
