Headphones Keep Us Connected to Learning

Help me give my students a classroom set of Wholesale Bulk Headphones to replace our current headphones which are breaking down at an alarming rate.

My Students

My curious, motivated, and inspiring students are eager to learn! My school qualifies for universal free breakfast and lunch due to over 80% free or reduced-price lunch status. Our students and their families live in an economically disadvantaged community. My second graders and I are part of a 4 classroom team. Most of our students were in first grade with us last year and now we will loop together through second grade. Over the course of two years, my students and my teacher colleagues and I will have countless opportunities to learn from each other.

Our class motto is We never, never, never, never, never give up!

This means we all work together, ask questions, and think hard every day. My inspiring and inspired students appreciate the generosity of donors who help us obtain the resources we need.

My Project

We are fortunate to have iPads and Chromebooks in our classroom. We use them daily on two popular learning platforms for math and literacy.

In a room full of excited learners engaged on devices, headphones are vital to allowing each individual student to hear and do their work!

Our district and generous DonorsChoose friends have made these devices possible and have provided headphones from time to time. Unfortunately we find ourselves at the time of year where our school budget doesn't include funds to replace headphones. So here we are looking to the kindness of sweet and generous donors to help us make the daily miracle of individual device time an overall more quiet and engaged time in our classroom.
