I am a Pre-K teacher in a Title 1 district in Oklahoma, in which 100% of our students are free and reduced lunch. My learners are sweet, kind, and joyful learners. They come in every day anxious to see what we are working on, and ready to master every concept they are given.
My students radiate excitement to learn, so it is fun to give them
projects and activities that challenge their creativity. With them. each day is a new opportunity to think about academia in diverse, challenging, and fascinating ways. Plus, through the activities they are given, they begin to develop passions and envision themselves as doctors, teachers, engineers, business owners, and much more. It is these moments of recognizing the value in knowledge that fuels my teacher heart and their student minds.
I would love to continue providing resources and opportunities for these little ones, as they will quickly become the future of our world! If you can donate any amount, it would bless my students tremendously. Thank you in advance!
I am eager to tell you all the ways that our project will benefit my students!
I am seeking a class set of headphones for my students to take ownership of!
These resources will help learners grow in a multitude of ways. For example, Pre-K students are in the beginning stages of learning to read. As they progress as readers, these headphones would allow them to listen to books being read aloud. When a child hears a book, their mind begins to understand the processes of story telling, such as sequence, characters, theme, etc. Also, these headphones would allow students to hear limitless vocabulary and sight words while listening to books.
Not only are headphones helpful when listening to stories read aloud, but they also play a significant role in giving these young learners an opportunity to "play" with learning. This would look primarily like children working on academic websites, in which they can learn colors, shapes, letter sounds and recognition, and more. At this age, it is important to keep learning fun and engaging; utilizing headphones and technology does just that!
