My students need headphones to help them learn through the apps that Apple has available for second grade learners and participate on the new computer reading program!
Our classroom is filled with learning and imagination. We work on reading, writing, math, handwriting, social studies etc. everyday. We teach our students what they need to learn and more importantly to love learning. As a special education teacher, in an Inclusive Co-Teaching setting (in which both general education students and special education students learn side by side) in East Harlem, it is my job to provide opportunities for all students to learn in different ways to meet their diverse learning needs. It is important that my instruction includes audio, visual and kinesthetics aspects enabling all students to access information.
Inclusion is not simply about proximity, it is about intentionally planning for the success for all students.
In addition to having an integrated community of learners, we also consider the socioeconomic status and cultures in our classroom community when creating our classroom environment and implementing lessons. Our students are mainly Hispanic and African-American, inner-city children that range in level of education as well as ranging in language exposure. Some of our students come from newly immigrated parents who speak very little English.
Thanks to generous past donations of technology like iPads and laptops, we almost have a full class set. As our students use these devices they wish they could use the sound on them, to help them read along or listen to music without disturbing the whole class.
We need a classroom set of headphones that are both sturdy and functional to help make our students learning more engaging.
Fifteen headphones will help our classroom utilize all the functions and sounds that our technology has to offer especially with read along and math applications which we are currently using without sound.
