Hearing To Understand On So Many Levels!

My students need Wholesale Kids Bulk Earbuds to use with their individual chrome books. They read, learn, and understand on so many different levels that the earbuds will allow them to access sound when needed.

My Students

All of my students have hearts to learn, but most of them come from a non-supportive or low-income home. Every student deserves a quality education. One that meets every need whether it is financial or educational.

My students make me laugh with their funny antics and stories that they tell.

Their ability to come to class every day, as positive as they possibly know how to be, encourages me on a daily to be a constant positive in their lives. They know without any doubts that they are safe in class and that they are loved.

I call my students "my children" because I carry a very deep and passionate love for each one of them. They know they can trust me to be at school every day, that I will always be honest with them about everything, and that they can come to me about any thing. I come into every year with a desire to relate to each one, and become vulnerable so they will know that when I tell them "I know how you feel", they know that I'm not just saying words I don't mean. When I tell them I love them, they know its true.

My Project

This project will assist me in reaching the different learning levels of my students, by allowing them to be given individual learning time while I meet with small groups of students who struggle more than most with reading. With individual earbuds, each student can be read to on our Myon, Lexia, and Weekly Studies programs if that student is on a very low reading level. At the same time, it prevents any time of distraction in the classroom.

In today's world, now more than ever, kids are coming to school from a large variety of home environments.

I have supplied earbuds for my students for the last 2 years, so that they can listen to a book, or math instructional video, or even a science video without disturbing his/her classmates. Even having the ability to work on a project together that includes doing video presentations without disturbing the class has been proven very helpful in classroom management.

I believe that this will also teach the students responsibility. The earbud replacement covers will help minimize replacing the earbuds due to lost or damaged covers. The hooks will provide an organized location to keep the earbuds when not in use. The labels will keep them separated and easy to know who's is who's.
