I Want to Hear You Read to Me

My students need individual ear bud sets, to allow for sanitary sharing of the center.

My Students

Do you remember listening to books on tape or CD? Do you remember sharing those same headphones with every other kid in the classroom? Here's your chance to help today's students have that love of hearing literature while not sharing broken, germy headphones!

My students learn at a Title I school, where 97% are on free or reduced lunch and over half are learning English as their second language.

They LOVE to be read to! They come from homes where there is rarely a computer, much less Internet connection for technology use at home.

My Project

Many of my students are learning to speak English. These ear bud sets will allow them to hear fluent English speaking and reading even when the teacher is working with other students. The splitters will allow them to listen with a partner without disturbing others in the classroom.

Please consider making a donation to this project.

You can help a child learn English, foster a love of reading, and make sure every child has their own clean set of ear buds to use while doing it!
