My Students

My 4th grade students are the best! They come from various backgrounds, but are all hardworking and eager to learn. Most of these students have economic​ hardships, yet come to school each day and give their all. I plan to motivate them day-by-day to become a better version of themselves. These students love, and work best with hands-on activities, and pay close attention to all sorts of visuals they are provided with. I plan to work hard in order to provide them with engaging materials to work with everyday.

My Project

My students love to learn through the use of their iPad. We use educational math resources on a daily basis to help build their math fluency through the use of fast facts or word problems. Unfortunately, our school does not provide headphones for each student, and their families do not have resources to go out and buy some. This causes 10+ iPads to be running at the same time with the volume up. What a distraction this can be for small students, and even for a teacher who is trying to work at the same time in a small group setting with kids.

Your donation will help supply my classroom with headphones to allow my students to work independently during intervention time.

This will help keep classroom noise down, and minimize disruptions or distractions. I have also requested some headphones with a microphone attached to accommodate the needs of certain students in my classroom. All headphones will be kept in the classroom and be sanitized on a daily basis. These items will help keep my students engaged in the classroom and make them even more excited for intervention time.
