Headstart With Headphones

Help me give my students these Lil Gadget headphones. They are sturdy for little hands and seem to be ones that stand up to the constant use of first graders.

My Students

My students are a group of highly energetic and motivated first graders. They love to learn and delight in sharing their knowledge with others. My students come from diverse backgrounds and our school is located in a high needs area. With that in mind, I want to give my students every advantage that I can to be successful and reach their full potential. We learn from one another on a daily basis and strive to be cognizant of what we can do to help others through learning and caring. Being able to fully meet the diverse learning styles in my classrooms is something that I strive for on a daily basis.

My Project

Lil Gadget Headphones are perfect for first graders. They are sturdy and will be perfect for the constant use that they will get in the classroom from so many little hands constantly using them with iPad apps for Math and Literacy. I have had other headphones which haven't been able to withstand the use that 6 and 7 year olds give them on a daily basis and have to purchase new ones constantly. I was told about these from another teacher and she gave them high marks for performance in grade one. WooHoo! Please help me give my students these Lil Gadget headphones and help my students work in an environment that helps them focus since they have headphones on and be conducive to academic growth. These headphones will also help my students who aren't using them from being distracted by students using iPads without headphones. Thank you for supporting this project and my students!
