Mrs. Lanza from Brooklyn NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need headphones to use with the computers in our classroom to support their individual academic learning styles and give them an opportunity to practice academics independently engaging them in learning.
My students are 1st graders who come from a diverse background. We have many English Language learners and well as children with special needs. Not only are these students diverse in their socioeconomic status or cultural background but also in there learning styles. Many of my students are visual and kinesthetic learners who learn through hands-on and visual materials.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Our school is a Title I school located in Brooklyn and all of the students receive free lunch. Many of our students live in shelters and temporary housing situations.
The headphones will help in my class by allowing my students to have access to computer programs at all times during the day and not interfering with the other children who are learning. Our class is an ICT classroom with two teachers a general education teacher and a special education teacher as well as 32 children with a variety of learning styles. These headphones would help keep the noise level down as well as engage the students in meaningful activities. The students will be able to build upon their sight vocabulary, improve their listening skills and be exposed to a variety of story structures as well as work on math skills independently. While other children are learning in small groups.
The donations will help improve my classroom by allowing my students to listen to math and phonics on the computer.
Since I have many ELL students and many nonreaders, they will be able to learn new vocabulary and listen to good interpretive reading. Listening to audiobooks teaches critical listening skills, introduces new genres, and invites students to listen to books above their level. This also will help them in math as well to work and practice skills taught in the group to build on fluency.
