Teaching at a brand new school also means I get the opportunity to decide what teaching materials are most beneficial to my students' learning. I am constantly on the quest to answer the question "What will make our daily learning more meaningful?"
Even though we receive some supplies from our district, from time to time there is still a need for additional items.
If you are able to, I would greatly appreciate your help in helping me provide engaging activities for my 2nd graders.
My students currently rotate between centers where they can focus on specific skills. Two of their center rotations are the Chromebook and listening centers. Although our school provides Chromebooks for our classroom, they do not provide the headphones. Headphones are an essential part of the listening center because when each child has his/her own headphones, they can also choose which activity they wish to complete at when they are at a Chromebook without fear of disrupting the other students. In our listening center, they are able to listen to stories read aloud for them. The audio books requested would go to this center so that students can follow along in the book as they listen to the words being read to them.
Students need choice and extra practice in order to excel at the skills they are learning.
The headphones and audio books requested would allow them to do just that!
