When my students enter the classroom it is home to many of them; a safe place to be themselves, to learn, to struggle freely, to grow. More than half of students are from low-income households and many are struggling readers. Every day we use reading as an intricate part of our learning and the forefront for applying and practicing new skills.
These students are fearless, full of energy, enthusiastic, and are hungry to learn more; engagement is a priority.
I work to create rigorous activities that encourage their curious minds to want to ask, "What's next?" They love to ask questions, work together, and be creative. When my students are engaged with reading and writing they produce their best work, but more-so, they enjoy learning with each other. I strive to maximize each opportunity they have. Watching them get excited to learn is a big part of why I do what I do!
I am requesting 30 pairs of headphones so that my students may have complete access to the technology we use throughout the day. These headphones will expand each students access to the texts we're using. It gives struggling readers a chance to hear stories being read to them, or for all learner to be fully immersed in a web quest.
Headphones help keep all students on the same level and encourage them to pay attention.
Headphones help students focus on their assignments and not other students assignments. Headphones give students of all reading levels the opportunity to access texts. Headphones also help reduce distractions. Using multimedia presentations and language learning applications are an important resources in classrooms. Using headphones will certainly benefit all of my students!
