Ms. Schlicher from Crowley LA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hearing Is Important!

My students need headphones to be able to hear the computer above the air conditioner and a CD player to listen to stories during workshop time.

My Students

"Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with tremendous spirit of adventure & a love of play." - Henri Matisse

I feel this quote describes my first graders perfectly.

Most of my students come from a low-income household, but they do not let that hold them back. They are always on the go and readying to learn and try new things. We work most of the time hands-on and manipulating things. My students enjoy using technology and listening to stories.

They are a fun loving group of kids and our future!

My Project

My students work on the computers to practice math facts and review the phonics we have been learning. When they are on the computers, I have to turn off the air conditioner, so they can hear the program they are working on. By having headphones, my student will be able to remain cool, while completing the math and phonics programs.

We will also be able to implement a listening area in my classroom by having the CD player.

My students love listening to stories as well as reading along with others.

Please consider helping my students become better readers and mathematicians by helping fund our project.
