My students need an ihome system to play music during reading clases, to support them in retaining what they read.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The restrictions of playing streamed music over the Internet have kept my students from enjoying reading to music. Having this speaker system will allow me to use my phone to play all genres of music during reading classes. This will help the students to get into the "reading zone".
My classroom serves 138 diverse 7th grade students.
My students are eager and curious about reading. My students come from low social-economic background. The school setting is based on grades 6-8 with a total of 978 students, located in South Central, Omaha.
Music inspires kids as they read. Music stimulates the brain of young adults. Music can be used as a resource for reading projects. Music can relax and promote positive behavior. Music provides opportunities for interactions. Music is a must in our classroom. Music is a need in our classroom. The activity that I would use would be helping students transition from group to group. Also playing a musical score from a movie can help students visualize on what they are reading. Students will learn that reading to music will keep them in the "reading zone" which allows them to discover the depths of reading.
Not being able to play any music from a computer is keeping my students from learning with music.
Having this speaker system in our room will help with retaining what is being read. It will help with the transitions going from group to group. Overall it will keep the students engaged in their reading!
