Coming out of retirement I couldn't have asked for a better class or set of parents. Even though this is a low income school, the parents are very helpful and willing to do anything for their children's education. The children are very well behaved and want to learn.
Many of them are from diverse ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomics.
Some have even been homeless. Many of these children have never ridden a school bus or been on a field trip. Most of the students walk to school, as we are in the middle of a neighborhood.
My students will use the Wired Volume Limited kids headphones to listen to instructions on the I Station reading program, Lexia reading program, Star Reading, and Reflex Math. Being able to hear the instructions on the reading programs and Star will help the students improve their reading comprehension. Listening to the math instructions through the headphones will improve their recognition and fluency of math facts and their understanding of word problems.
The Wired Volume Limited kids headphones will also help the students to concentrate by blocking outside noises such as students talking to themselves.
