My students come from a low income or single parent/guardian homes. School is a place where some of them come to get away from the home lives they have to deal with.
Many of my students have ADHD or low self-esteem.
They struggle with organizational skills and keeping up with materials. The 6th grade is made up of over 300 brilliant students who deserve to have all they need in order to become successful in the future.
The materials I am asking for will help my students use computers and software that require them to listen to lessons or discussions. My students all have Chromebooks, but they have no headphones when in class. It is hard to hear when 20 computers are going at different rates.
The poor quality of cheap earbuds makes it hard to hear, so headphones would help each one tremendously.
I know that if they are able to hear the lessons and explanations they can choose correct answers!
I am also requesting Teachers Pay Teachers gift cards to help purchase science lessons that are digital and aligned with our curriculum.
