My Students

My students are from a large city. With that being said, they are made up of hard working families. They come from families that care about their children and would do anything for them. My students come from all different cultural backgrounds.

The students in my classroom, my school, come from warm, loving families and most importantly, they come from families that want them to do well, their best in this world.

My class is made up of 16 girls and 12 boys this year. Within that break down, I have students who are above grade level, on grade level and need support to get to grade level academically. I have students who are very confident in their personality, and students who are quiet and could use a confident boost. All in all, I have a variety of students who make up my classroom. They show a true example of what an IB classroom should look like, which we are at the school I am at.

My Project

Some students have a volume level that is louder than others. There are many times that some children go without being heard. Not because they don't want to be but because they do not have the lung capacity to speak loud enough for the class to hear what they have to say. With a microphone that is able to be shared in the classroom, all students will have the opportunity to be heard.

With the help of something that is child friendly and fun, students who may be shy of speaking in front of 30 of their peers have a more welcoming tool to assist them.

Something that is friendly to use makes students WANT to use it. Because of this, students who do not share ideas will want to share ideas more which will have more open conversations with the WHOLE class.
