My Students

Students at our school come from all over the world...Bosnia, Africa, Nepal, Iran, China, Ethiopia, just to name a few. We love to share and learn about the different cultures in our classroom. We also love to work on Chromebooks. We love to listen to stories and do educational programs.

My students desperately need headphones.

We have many educational programs that my students use on a daily basis. We also need headphones for listening to wonderful books during reading center time.

My Project

My students will use these headphones during times that would require using the Chromebooks or laptops. We need these because the technology makes noise and my students are very easily distracted.

Headphones will improve my classroom environment and our small group learning communities.

My students are learning to read, but love to hear stories on the computer programs we use. Having headphones will make a world of difference in my classroom.

It will also help the other students in the room that are not using technology to focus on their work. Please consider donating headphones to our wonderful kindergarten class.
