Headphones Will Change Our World!

My students need ear buds for their Chrome pads. We were fortunate to receive a grant for Chrome pads but do not have headphones.

My Students

I have a great class of hard working boys and girls. We are fortunate enough to have received a grant so that each student has their own Chrome pad for school. I am able to use the computer to teach in a more innovative fun way. I use games and website to keep my students engaged while also teaching the objective necessary for 5th grade. They are determined to meet their goals and eager to learn. We are an inner city school, 100% free lunch, so funds are very tight. My students love doing work on the computer and it allows me to monitor their success and identifies what they need help in.

My Project

Our class has found innovative ways of learning through technology. We are able to learn and complete a majority of our assignments online.

It is the way of the future!

Chrome pads allows me, the teacher, to track progress and helps those who need additional instruction. Many of of lessons require sound.

Many of my students have special needs. With headphones, they will be able to have books read to them as they read along with the computer.

It has been a struggle because many students do not have headphones. I buy the Dollar Tree ones but they do not last long.

It would be fabulous to have better quality headphones, so we can get the full benefit of using our Chrome pads. Our amazing students deserve the best education possible. Ear buds will definitely enhance their learning.
