I am so lucky to be able to teach 2nd grade each year! My 2nd graders are so eager to learn which makes my job fun and exciting. I have 30 diverse students in my class this year with 8 extra students who come for social studies and science each day. Yes, that's 38 2nd graders! This class is made up of students with a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and abilities.
We celebrate our differences through a variety of classroom and school wide activities that promote Kindness, Perseverance, Joy, Curiosity, Compassion and a sense of Belonging.
The students in 2nd Grade thrive on using technology in the classroom to enhance their understanding of concepts taught and learned. We use many programs that help students stay engaged in learning, such as Book Creator, Google Classroom, RAZ Kids, REFLEX math and many more.
I do not currently have enough headphones for each student in my class, and many of the earphones that we do have are tangled, broken or uncomfortable for students to wear. We are in need of a sturdy set of headphones for all students.
I am requesting a new set of headphones for use with the chrome books in our classroom. The headsets will help students block out external sounds in the classroom so they can focus on learning without getting distracted by outside stimulus.
By donating to this project, you will not only improve and increase student attention and focus you will ultimately help increase student achievement.
In the world today, children need to learn how to navigate in a technology rich world. In my 2nd grade classroom we use technology in a variety of ways. By having new earphones in our classroom we will be able to utilize the technology regularly without the frustration of ineffective sound due to faulty earphones.
