Mr. Fifield from Springfield MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones Will Help Us

My students need headphones to access a variety of online learning sites that support learning in all subject areas. The technology will help them hear and read along with content in math, science, literature, and more.

My Students

My students are creative, communicative, and caring.

They express themselves through quiet conversation, raucous performance, and thoughtful design.

My students utilize the classroom environment to make sense of their place within the world, as they better understand themselves and the topics presented to them. They also select some of their own topics of interest for study.

My students share their diverse cultural heritage with one another, contributing to a rich classroom community! They come from a variety of backgrounds that include a wide range of socio-economic and ethnic diversity. Together, the students and I cultivate an understanding and expression of this heritage and identity, as we explore the history connected to second-grade standards that address our nation's ongoing history of immigration.

My Project

My students need headphones to allow them to access curriculum in the digital age. The classroom sets of headphones will insure that all 25 students will have a pair to use, as they listen to books and read along with text that is tailored to their individual reading levels. The 5 extra pairs will accommodate any additional students that join our class later in the year.

Online learning experiences in all subject areas now occupy an important supplemental role in the lives of today's students.

Students will use the headphones while accessing a variety of online learning websites. Our math and science curricula both allow for students to access content via the computer. The headphones will allow each student to hear information connected to things such as digital math games and science videos. They could even hear recordings produced by themselves and other students!
