Our rural school serves over 700 students. In my classroom, I serve 25 first-grade boys and girls who are eager to begin their journey to becoming fluent readers, writers, and problem solvers.
Although 80% of them live in poverty, and more than 60% of these young boys and girls are overcoming the language barriers of learning a second language, they are hard workers who only wish to achieve at the same rate as their peers, and one day leave their footprint on our community and the world.
I am asking for twelve pairs of headphones to accommodate the kinesthetic and auditory learners in my classroom. Classrooms that incorporate the freedom of movement have higher yields because teachers are better able to tap into their students' strengths. The headphones will allow my students to work on the go while blocking out other sounds and distractions, to create and explore, and enhance their learning in the classroom. My students will be using headphones as they work on a combination of intervention programs- for those who need additional reading and math practice, and for independent work as they research and express learning without distractions from their classmates. Headphones add learning and focus.
Facilitating the varying intelligences in my classroom will be enhanced by the addition of headphones for my students to use as they work independently around the room in a way that's accommodating to their learning styles...on the go!
