Ms. Eldridge from Benton LA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning by Listening

My students need new headphones with volume control for our computers and listening center. Some of ours half-way work or don't work at all.

My Students

Our class is a room full of super stars! We are constantly trying to improve ourselves to find our best way to learn. This includes everything from moving around, to technology, to paper/pencil work. The students in my room try their best so I do my best to give them what they need to learn!

My students are in the first grade at a country school in Louisiana.

They strive to be their best every day, while keeping life fun and balanced if you know what I mean! My students work as hard, if not harder, than many adults. Along with being hardworkers, they are amazing little friends! They challenge each other while supporting and cheering for each other. Words to describe my students are: happy, energetic,imaginative, hardworking, and full of heart!

My Project

Kids LOVE technology, and technology is great for learning. But, some of our headphones don't work well, and my students cannot hear the program they are trying to use, which can be frustrating to say the least! With these new headphones my students can use all 5 of their senses to learn!

These headphones will make a difference in my classroom technology experience.

Our school is a very old school that is always trying to upgrade ourselves in the technology department. Sometimes the little things, like headphones, get forgotten or pushed aside. These new headphones could help us in so many ways!
