Help Make Us Happy with Headphones!

My students need headphones for our computers and listening center. We only have three headphones that are working.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We love to read and work on the computer. We have a reading program that will read books to us. We also have a listen to reading center that helps us with fluency. The students love listening to the stories. Our challenge is that we only have three working headphones.

Our school is a K-5 Elementary school.

We have 24 students in our first grade classroom. They love reading and listening to reading. The students use the computers and listen to reading center daily. They also use the computer for math programs. Students use the computer daily.

My Project

The students will be able to work on the computer and listen to reading center without disturbing the rest of the classroom. The headphones will keep the noise level down so, the rest of the class can continue learning. The students using the headphones will be able to hear the stories and the directions to the computer programs that we use for reading and math.

The donation to this project will improve our classroom because there will be less noise and distractions from the computer and listen to reading center.

It will be better for the entire class.
