My Students

I teach in a Title 1 school in West TN. This year I have 20 students in my class. My kindergarten students are creative, kind, and full of questions! They come to school each day ready to try new things. They love everything from learning centers, dramatic play, to technology based learning. My students love to play on the computers. This has been hard for us this year due to a change from earphones to ear buds. The earbuds were very cheap quality and tore easily. My kids have begged for headphones for our computer stations. We would be grateful for any help! Thank you so much!

My Project

These headphones will help students on phonics and math activities that go along with our curriculum. They will also allow students to read/listen to books at their interest level. Reading books they are interested in helps build a love for reading. The headphones will be kept with the computers for students to share. Hopefully, this will take care of the problem we had with the ear buds getting tangled and ripping apart. Students will also use the headphones when playing learning based games.

The headphones help students focus on what is on their computer, instead of being distracted by their neighbors computer.
