Mrs. Thompson from East Chicago IN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hear Ye Hear Ye

My students need headphones and center materials to help cater to their different learning styles. I would like to purchase headphones that are durable and sanitary to be used for years to come.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as typical. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Currently my students are in need of a few items to help enhance their center learning experience. The items have requested will be used in conjunction with items that are currently in the classroom. I am requesting headphones to use with the Chromebooks that are currently in the classroom. The Chromebooks are used daily during math centers. The headphones are needed to help keep the distraction of the noise and music from the lesson at a minimal.

I know these items will be of great use and help aide the betterment of the students online and technological learning needs.

We currently have many online fun hands on educational and engaging programs that the students use daily. We would like to continue to use these programs without distractions through the use of headphones.

I have chosen the most sturdy and less likely to hold germs while sharing. I have also chosen to a few other items to help enhance math centers. These items will aid the hands on aspect of teaching. Our current math unit is graphing and students have been creating their own graph paper which is taking up much of our needed instructional time. I know these items will be of great use and help aide the betterment of the students online and technological learning needs.
