Mrs. Osterkamp from Vallejo CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can Hear You!

Help me give my students a blue tooth speaker and headphones. These items will help us to better focus and learn more through the use of technology that helps us to hear more clearly!

My Students

My first graders are so happy to be at school, experiencing new things and learning! We are located in the most diverse zip code in the country! Working together, learning from each other and preparing for life is a challenge for these first graders!

Our young dreamers, the leaders of our future, deserve our best in supporting them on their path to becoming successful citizens.With new technology, we are able to learn in modalities that reach every child.

School is a fun place to be when we have the necessary tools to help us learn.

My Project

Technology is coming alive in my classroom! The students have iPads they use to further their learning and understanding. Having a bluetooth speaker that can be used both indoors and out for science activities, reading activities and PE activities will further our use of technology. Sturdy headphones will help us to work together as pairs on iPads and in our listening center without disrupting others.

These items will be great for students that learn best using auditory skills.

We all learn differently; being able to hear lessons and activities that are coming through a quality speaker that the whole class can hear, and being able to use headphones to make learning more clear will make all the difference in the world for my first graders.
