My Students

My school is one of 20 elementary schools in the district. My school hosts students from K-5, including bilingual classes. All students are able to receive free lunch and breakfast. The students are so full of energy and want to learn.

My students are full of energy and learn in many different ways.

Anyway, I can make learning fun and interesting for my young learners will help build a solid base for them to build upon later.

I am hoping to provide for these low-income students a positive learning experience where they are given the tools to foster their creative minds. In addition, these students love when I incorporate technology into any subject area. I am hoping that I can inspire these students to pursue the STEM areas where they can have many employment opportunities in their future.

My Project

All of my students have required time they need to spend on the classroom computers using a variety of programs for Language Arts, Math, and Science. Currently, we only a small number of headphones that sometimes work and sometimes do not work. This leaves a number of students struggling to hear. It makes it very difficult for the students to hear the directions and phonemic sounds and words on the programs on which they are working. At this young age, letter sounds are crucial to the student's ability to decode words and learn how to read.

Having headphones that operate and fit correctly is extremely important for my students so they can work on computers at their individual level.

These items will allow the students to concentrate on the task at hand. When this happens, the students will be able to see their own accomplishments quickly! By donating to our project, you will be helping my students realize their individual skill sets while gaining confidence and knowledge in all subject areas!
