Mrs. Rivera from Colton CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help My Class Hear!

My students need a pair of headphones with a microphone. They each have their own Chromebook to work on but often cannot hear directions or stories because the entire class has their speaker volume turned up.

My Students

My students have quite a few obstacles to overcome. But they are up for the challenge!! They attend a Title 1 school in a low socioeconomic area. Many of them eat both breakfast and lunch at school sign this may be their only meals for the day. Some of them have been exposed to much more than any 6 year old should ever see.

Despite all the challenges they face, they come to school ready to learn!

They have fun at school and try to exceed my expectations all the time! They absolutely love reading! It is one of my passions and they have been infected with my excitement. Another one of my passions is integrating technology in my teaching. My students have taken to this like second nature. I am so proud to be their teacher, and I am looking forward to doing all I can to helping them reach all of their goals in first grade.

My Project

My students have their own Chromebook to work from but they do not have headphones to go with them. Often they all will turn their speakers up and that creates a lot of background noise which makes it hard for them to hear their stories. I also use a program where they can record their own voices and their parents can hear them retelling their learning. The microphones in these headsets are the perfect solution.

I am excited for them to hear and record themselves, they love to playback their voices and sharing their learning with their families.

Thank you for helping out my precious learners.
