We are a group of eager to learn 2nd graders. Our school is a very small, rural family and community oriented place of learning. We believe in hands-on, interactive learning that allows students the freedom to move about while also challenging them in a real world problem solving scenario.
We love competitions and challenges and have begun to integrate the arts this year into our Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies lessons.
Our school is a Title I school where 87% of the student population receives free/reduced meals.
I am requesting a grade level set of headphones for my second grade students to enable them to hear and focus during their online experiences. My district focus heavily on technology in the classroom, so students use on a daily basis either for online instruction or assessments. For example, I may teach a whole group lesson on 3 digit addition with regrouping. Ten of my students may master the skill, eight may need a little more support and the rest may need additional practice. I can divide my students into groups based on their need to differentiate their learning experience. The students who have mastered or need little support can use their headphones to work online to further develop this skill or practice a new one, while I provided additional support to the students who have not mastered the skill.
The donations will help to improve my classroom by allowing me to use technology to differentiate small group strategies so that my students can become more successful.
These headphones will allow my students to block out distractions in the classroom while they focus on their individual online experience.
