Hear, Hear! We Need Headphones!

My students need headphones to use with the computers in our classroom, as well as in the computer lab.

My Students

My classroom is full of 21 first graders that have personalities as unique and diverse as their educational needs. I find it hard to describe my students without writing 2-3 paragraphs about each of them individually. But to sum them up, I would have to say that my 21 firsties are incredibly kind, hard working, and eager to learn children. They find excitement and joy in the little things, and their curious minds are what makes them the amazing students that they are. My students are incredible thinkers, that are learning how to be more independent as they get ready to tackle their next challenge: 2nd grade!

My Project

The headphones that we currently have are too big for my little first grader's ears and they have cords twice the size of them. They are also old and starting to fall apart. We need better quality headphones so that we can focus more on learning and less on how to work around technical difficulties! My students use our classroom computers to get on Reading and Math programs that are specifically targeted to their needs.

These programs are the best way for my students to get individualized instruction, while also using the technology that they know and love.

These headphones will allow my students to use these amazing Reading and Math programs more frequently and efficiently.
