Listen Up...Wireless!

My students need a wireless classroom headphones set to help motivate them to stay on task while at their center. They can listen to music while they work independently.

My Students

You know what it's like when you are around others and you're working on a task, you naturally want to talk. The difference between a kid and an adult is that we understand the need to finish our task, and in some cases can multitask

I have a very lively group of 29 little people that love to talk with their friends, it's a natural part of their development.

Unfortunately their gregariousness can also hinder their ability to complete a task in a set amount of time. It can also make the classroom a little noisy when the teacher is teaching a small group of students.

My Project

Think about how productive you can be while listening to music. You get into your zone of productivity and complete your tasks while listening to your favorite jam or relaxing tunes. It is my goal to not only help my students relax while listening to soothing music, or songs that we use to learn about math and phonics, but also to help limit the overall classroom noise during centers and small groups. Students will be able to focused on their tasks which will optimize their learning experience. My students need a wireless classroom headphones set to help motivate them to stay on task while at their center. They can listen to music while they work independently.

These headphones can travel to any center in the classroom and will be used to motivate students to stay on task while working.

Students who demonstrate they have the stamina and ability to complete their center will have the opportunity to wear the wireless headphones at their next center.
