As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I see students who are willing and eager to learn but just don't always have the opportunity or materials to do so properly.
I teach at a Title I school in Arizona where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Many of the students receive backpack food on the weekend. They come into school everyday with a smile on their face because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
I teach ELL students that are still learning the English language. I am requesting headphones so they can use with their iPads. Many of the activities that I do in my classroom require my students listing on their iPads. I have reading centers that students are listing to a story be read to them. I also have many other centers where students are working on word building and listening to stretched out sounds in words. There are also many apps on the student's iPads that help with speaking and listening skills, vocabulary and reading skills that require close listening.
The headphones in my classroom would give my students a much needed boost of practice in the areas of listening and speaking.
This would build confidence in my ELL learners which will help them be successful in all other subject areas.
