Mrs. Dominguez from Austin TX is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Listen Up WITHOUT a Tangle

My students need a listening center. We need a tape converter to update our old tapes to CDs, MP3 players and wireless headphones for a productive listening center.

My Students

My students are bright, invigorating, enthusiastic learners who have a yearning to learn about many topics. The students in my class face many struggles outside of my classroom in their lives and at home. However, I work hard to create a loving, caring, and safe environment for them in our classroom.

The students in my classroom work hard day in and day out to satisfy their hunger for learning and succeeding at challenges.

With help from wonderful donors, I can create a suitable environment to meet their specific needs.

My Project

I have rummaged through the school and gotten second-hand materials to finally get a listening center! Now my class needs materials to have the most productive listening center our second-hand materials will allow us. Help my class update and revamp all our old bilingual and English books.

With a tape converter, this tech-savvy teacher can convert old taped books to kid-friendly CDs to use with the wireless headphones to have a tangle free station.

Having a tangle free station will help my students listen more and fight with wires less, increasing their overall reading time in class. Please help them listen to both languages so they can achieve success in dual languages.
