My Students

Our room is never quiet... and I like it that way! It is usually a class buzzing with questions, conversations, and inquiry all about what students are learning. I have noticed however, that most of my students need quiet time during the writing block to be most effective.

Most often, my students’ creative ideas are moving so fast in their minds they can't get them on the paper before they've lost their train of thought.

The children are frustrated and then writing becomes a subject students do not feel success with. I don't want to see this with any child in any subject.

These headphones could be a quick and easy fix for helping all children in writing. We currently have had 3 pairs of headphones to try out from another teacher this year and the children have responded so well that they wait in line to be one of the three each day to utilize them!

Please help my students have the noise canceling headphones for use in the writing block throughout the year so they can be more creative and successful in getting their ideas onto the paper.

My Project

If my project is funded it will help years of students tune out the world and be less frustrated while they are trying to get their ideas down with these great noise cancelling headphones. Within the class they will have a specific box for each headphone set to keep them safe in between use, which will help our class with a life skill such as responsibility as well. Children will be able to use this strategy as a way to overcome obstacles preventing them from success.

Students will be able to see through the distractions to get the task complete!

Students and teachers alike will be so much happier!
