My Students

This coming year, my classroom will be a full inclusion classroom. There will be 24 inquisitive, compassionate, high energy first-grade learners who will be ready to use the NGSS for new improved science exploration.

This is a diverse population of children ranging in their abilities.

In order to best serve my students with the new standards, I need supplies for facilitate the exploration needed in hands on experiments. My district doesn't give us the physical supplies that we need to best conduct the experiments.

My Project

We are First Graders. Some of us are learning our letters and sounds, some of us are learning phonic blends, and some of us are just starting to learn English as a second language. We need to be able to hear sounds, words and language correctly when using technology.

By getting a set of headphones for each student to keep in their desk, students will be able to quickly get to work without untangling shared headphones everytime there is a chance to use technology independently.

The best way to teach my First Graders their sounds and blends is by hearing them. I can have each child working at their level by utilizing technology.
