My Students

My students love to learn. They come to school everyday excited to learn. My school is a title one school, with over 92% free and reduced lunch. My school does a lot to help all our students but sometimes there just isn't enough funds for classroom needs. I currently teach two classes reading and writing. I have a total of 40 students ranging in levels from not in text to reading above grade level. I do my best to differentiate instruction for each child but that takes a lot of resources

My Project

My class is in desperate need of headphones for our classroom computers and laptops. We have 6 computers and 6 laptops and not enough working headphones. We are not able to use all of our technology.

It is hard to see technology not being used because of not having headphones.

The students do not have extra money to buy and bring in their own.

We use a computer program to supplement both our reading and math curriculum. I am able to assign extra practice for specific concepts that a student may need extra help with. My students are expected to have at least 45 minutes on this program each week and they are having a hard time meeting this need with out having headphones to use the computers and laptops.
