My students need to be able to hear their individualized computer instruction! We need headphones.
I have an energetic bunch of 8- and 9-year-olds in my room. My students are fun to be with and are learning how to be good citizens in our classroom, our school, and our community. The majority of my students are from families that struggle to live at or below the poverty line. Resources are often stretched thin for my families, and the children they care about. Impulse control, tolerance levels, and problem-solving skills are affected by pressures that come with a childhood where the effects of poverty can be overwhelming.
Making it easy to learn is always my first step when planning instruction.
Removing obstacles rather than accepting them is what I see as the most important step to teaching. As many of my students say, "Mrs. Goldman makes it easy to learn!"
This particular bunch of students has inspired me to search for a way to help them focus during a noisy time in our schedule.
Our school is lucky to be able to use an online reading and mathematics intervention program. Students are provided an entirely individualized instruction based on correct and incorrect answers, response times, and demonstrated mastery. Students are asked to bring to school their own earbuds or headphones so that each child can avoid straining to hear directions over his or her many neighbors' computers. My students are unable to bring in ear buds to use during our computer lab time twice weekly; their families cannot provide these tools. If every child has ear buds, that means every child can hear their individualized computer lessons in reading and math each week. If every child has earbuds, that means more productive use of a learning tool that our school has worked hard to provide. Hearing means listening, and listening means learning! Help my third graders focus and listen well during computer time twice weekly. Imagine the sound of 26 children learning and following their own individualized instruction!
