Every morning as I walk on to the blacktop to pick up my second graders, I am greeted with hugs and "I missed you,” even if I saw them yesterday. They come to school with smiles on their faces the majority of days, and some days, their home lives show on their face. I want to ensure that they have the best educational experience I can give them during their time with me.
My students are joyful, curious, and their hardships do not define them.
I work in a Title I school in California where 97% of the students receive free breakfast, lunch, and backpacks full of food to take home over the weekend. My students still come to school ready to learn and take on the world!
My students have been lucky to be given a computer cart with chromebooks to use for online assignments, testing, and to learn important skills in technology. Our current problem is that some of the activities require the use of the audio on the chromebooks. I have tried buying earbuds at the dollar store, but they are too big for my second graders’ ears.
With this project, my second graders will receive headphones that are adjustable to fit their little ears and use during our technology time.
They will be able to better focus on the task in front of them and I will be able to work with small groups, so I can better meet the needs of all my students.
