Help me give my students headphones and dry erase boards for individual access to some of the basic resources they deserve to assist in their growth to becoming the kind of people that will make the world a better place!
This group of students is the sweetest group I have taught. They are kind-hearted and genuinely care about succeeding and doing their best. They are often from split family homes or homes where both parents are needing to work to provide for their needs. They try so hard, and they deserve all the resources I can get to help support their learning.
These students don't always have direct access to individual resources. Providing individual whiteboards and headphones will allow them to have that and let them grow at their own rate. They deserve the attention and focus of me, as their teacher, and individual supplies greatly support me in engaging each student to the point that they will be able to become successful. They can have a place to work out Math problems in small groups and whole class that allows me to get to them faster as I can see their work from farther away. We also use several computer programs that give individual instruction based on what lesson the student is on. Without good headphones, they can’t hear the lesson clearly to understand how to accomplish the tasks in the program.
Individual success will lead to the success of others around them as they lift each other up and help those in need in our world.
