My Students

My wonderful class of third graders consists of 20 students. I have a co-teacher who comes in twice a day for reading and math instruction for a class within a class setting. Several of my students have an IEP, some for reading, some for math and several for both. Many of their interactions with computers are here at school. We go to the computer lab 2 times a week and work on Moby Max and USA Test Prep for extra literacy and math skills practice. My students share some Chromebooks I currently have in my classroom. Head phones and mice are limited. We ask students to bring in ear buds, but they often break and are not sturdy enough to last all year. A class set of mice and over the ear headphones would be such an asset to my classroom to further my students' online experiences.

My Project

My students would benefit from having their own mouse and pair of headphones to help them navigate on their Chromebooks in class. We use them daily and often use them to take assessments in the classroom. Some students have difficulty navigating on their Chromebook and need the use of an external mouse. Not all of of my students come to school with head phones or a pair of ear buds and by each child having their own set of over the ear head phones they will be able to hear stories being read to them on websites such as Epic. They will also be able to watch science videos on Scholastic News and complete individual projects for science. This helps my students each have their own online experience in my classroom without the distraction of others sitting next to them.

My students are growing up in a world where learning to use computers is essential.

Many of their future occupations will require them to use computers daily. Like it or not, our world revolves around the world wide web! If each of them could have a mouse and a pair of head phones, it will help make their online encounters a positive one.
