My Students

Wilson Mizner once said "A good listener is not only popular everywhere but after a while he gets to know something.

My fantastic first graders love to be these kind of listeners.

They love to hear new information and soak it up like a sponge. Everyday they are exposed to new skills and these Hear Myself Sound Phones would be the perfect learning tool for them to have.

My Project

These fun phones let children hear themselves talk and really focus on every sound they make. The children will be able to practice blending words, exploring letter sounds and of course use them for reading stories. They would be able to concentrate and listen to the sounds and words they are saying. The best part is that they will hear themselves so well by just whispering so the children working around them will not get distracted.

I know you were once a good listener in school.

Please help my students by giving us a chance to be good listeners too by helping us purchase these sound phones. Then they can say I heard myself and I learned something. hide»
