Hocus Pocus, Help Us Focus!

Help me give my students privacy boards and ear muffs to help them focus when it is time to work on their own, as well as whisper phones they can use with partners!

My Students

My students are an incredibly sweet, inquisitive group, always excited to learn new things. They ask a lot of questions when there is an opportunity to explore.

Part of our class mission statement is, "We are super leaders; we will never give up!" We wrote it together and repeat it every day.

They are great at supporting and encouraging each other.

Our school is a Title I school where over half receive free or reduced-price lunches. We are in a rural area, but my students all live in town. I have several ESL students. Their academic abilities range from considerably below grade level to well above grade level.

My Project

My current group of seven year olds is giving me a run for my money. Literally half of them can NOT sit still and keep all their sounds inside them, and the other half need quiet to work. What is a teacher to do? My solution is to help the wigglers regulate their energy, and at the same time, help the silence lovers block everyone out!

I have students that can do amazing things- but only if they cannot see and/or hear anyone else!

The only realistic way to help them manage in the classroom is with privacy boards and ear muffs. This will allow them to ignore the visual and auditory noise that is permeating my classroom right now. i have a few, so I know it will work. Just not enough for this group. And for those times when I need a few to read with partners, whisper phones that are attached will save us all! Everyone will finally be able to learn and think in a way that is comfortable for them. What a difference it will make!

All of us would greatly appreciate some help solving our Clash of the Learners!
