My Students

My fabulous students are from Cincinnati, Ohio. We are an Urban Title I school with 100% receiving free/reduced lunch. My students work hard and deserve every opportunity to be successful in the classroom.

My students are special because they show up everyday and try their best.

They enjoy using iReady reading as a differentiated program to target their individual reading skills. There are large gaps in reading that I am trying to address this year, and many students need certain accommodations to help them be more successful. One of those accommodations includes having text read to them. That's why we need a classroom set of headphones.

My Project

My students are in need of headphones to help them become better readers. Many of my students are below grade-level and require intentional and strategical reading instruction with the modification of read-aloud opportunities. We use iReady for this purpose, but students do not have headphones for this activity. Right now they are asked to turn the volume down so only they can here it. But, realistically, it isn't the best scenario.

Please help us become better readers and keep our room quiet with these headphone sets.

The students appreciate your donation, and the teacher REALLY appreciates your donation! We are doing the best that we can during these trying times, and we have a lot of catching up to do without the added distraction that comes with not having headphones to make the reading instruction more manageable and less distracting.
