My Students

My classroom is full of students who are emergent bilingual learners. All of my students are learning English. My emergent bilingual learners are either recent arrivals or brand new to the country. My students bring a wide variety of cultures, languages, and experiences to the classroom in order to create a diverse learning environment.

In addition to learning English, my students are expected to expand their knowledge in order to reach the 2nd grade Common Core curriculum state standards.

My school is a small inclusive public school that is part of a large urban district where over 75% received free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

Every day my students are engaging with technology. Currently, we have very cheap headphones. This leads to time being spent on untangling the cords instead of engaging with the technology. In addition, the headphones are flimsy and break often, which leads us to fewer headphones; therefore, I no longer have a class set.

My class is full of emergent bilingual learners and having the ability to listen to resources is an amazing feature to further their learning of both the English language and the content.

These headphones would allow my students to quickly engage in academic content to further their learning without wasting any time! Additionally, these specific headphones, allow for my students to plug into each other allowing the need for technology such as a computer or tablet to be less because students will be able to share with ease. The increase of learning time will be dramatic! Lastly, it will lead to me increasing the opportunities for students to engage with technology because I will not be worried about time being wasted!
