Help Give My Students a Voice With Qball.

Help me give my students a more engaging learning experience with a Q-ball (Throwable microphone). Qball seeks to make learning engagement more fun and exciting. This would be perfect for my students!

My Students

My fourth graders are unique and thoughtful individuals. Together we bring both love and laughter to the classroom. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects that seek to challenge and encourage them to be great thinkers. My students come to school each day ready to be encouraged to try new things that will help them to grow both personally and academically.

The students of Lagrange Elementary come from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.

We also serve many English language learners. In other words, our school and my fourth-grade classroom are very diverse. What makes my fourth graders both special and worthy? My fourth-grade classes are always made up of a bunch of brilliant, kind, and funny students who love learning. My goal is to provide my students with learning experiences that are both fun and engaging.

My Project

Help give my students a voice with Q-Ball. Qball is a portable, throwable microphone that is made up of a durable foam that is also both light and soft. This microphone will help to increase engagement in my classroom by adding a physical element to classroom learning. This throwable microphone will also work to help to give my students a voice. My students are all incredibly bright, but many lack the confidence to share openly so that all may hear. My goal with Qball is to give their confidence a healthy boost and enhance their presentation skills. All of this, while also increasing their hand-eye coordination and learning at the same time. My quiet students will be able to use Q-Ball to express themselves all while learning and having fun. Qball would be an awesome addition to my classroom.
