My Students

My students are in first grade. They are between the ages of six and seven years old. My school is a Title I school located in Huntsville, Alabama. Most of my students come from low income households. My students are creative, full of energy and love to learn. I love to see the excitement on their faces as they overcome challenges in the classroom and learn new skills. I want to my students to have fun learning and look forward to coming to school every day.

My Project

All of the students in my class have an iPad. I would love for all of my students to have headphones to use when working on their iPads. My students use their iPads for various tasks in the classroom such as tests, assignments, practice, and free time. Most of the activities my students work on require sound.

Headphones would help my students to be able to focus on their task in a quiet environment.

Headphones would also help my students who are having a difficult time reading or completing an assignment. They can listen to questions or stories being read to them.
