My Students

I teach in a Title 1 school where 100 percent of the students receive a free breakfast. My students are excited and ready for many new adventures in kindergarten. They come to school ready to learn everyday. They are an energetic and inquisitive group. At this point in the year the children are realizing how much they have learned so far this year. They are motivated to challenge themselves through reading and math computer programs. They look forward to computer time in the classroom.

My Project

My goal is to have students learn through fun educational websites provided by the district. However, students cannot focus on the programs because we have no headphones. We need headphones so my students can use the computers without disturbing others.

These headphones will allow my students to clearly hear the reading and math programs on the computer.

When students use headphones they can focus on their individual learning program that is just right for them. Theses headphones will also help the rest of the class stay on task because they will not be distracted by the sounds of the programs.
