Mrs. Jones from Kansas City MO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning for Language!

My students need headphones to engage with their online English language arts program. Students have access to rigorous personalized learning but they can't hear the program while in the class.

My Students

My co-teacher and I have the honor and pleasure to educate some of the most resourceful students in the Kansas City Metro. We have access to an incredible language arts program which allows us to have better information for assessments. Guided reading formative assessments take place during small group instruction. Through teacher observation and anecdotal notes during small groups we are able to observe if students understand the concepts presented in a lesson.

32% of our students are at or above the 1st grade readiness reading level 48% of our students are on Kindergarten reading level and 20% of our students have increased their reading level by one unit.

In order to support our students reading and English language arts, we utilize a program called Lexia. Through Lexia, students "receive student-driven and teacher-directed personalized learning through fun and engaging online actives. Based on student progress, the program prescribes the instructional intensity needed in order to increase each student's likelihood of reaching end-of-year, grade-level benchmarks...Lexia's system of personalized learning and Assessment Without Testing is uniquely suited to support Response to Intervention models. Data-driven action plans help teachers maximize their time by focusing attention where it is needed most."

My Project

The biggest indicator of academic success is a student's amount of vocabulary that they have by the time they enter 3rd grade! Our English/Language Arts computer program, Lexia, ensures that students are increasing their vocabulary and language acquisition daily. Lexia provides students with individualized lessons and hands-on practice. For every lesson a student completes, the teacher receives a detailed report on instructional activities that need to be implemented in small groups. This program is incredible, however, it can be difficult to gauge students' development accurately when a majority have trouble hearing and completing their lessons. The addition of quality headphones would allow our students the opportunity to fully engage with the program. Students who are confident readers and learners online produce confident readers in the classroom!
