My Students

My classroom is home to 27 creative and energetic fifth graders. They love to learn new things and explore technology.

At our school, we believe that learning comes first.

My students are very creative, and they love to share. Each day they come to school with a smile on their face and they are eager to start the day. They are excited to embrace new opportunities and work through the challenges. They are not afraid to try new computer resources to show what they know. They love to create, share, and practice the concepts that they have learned across the curriculum. It is important that I am able to introduce them to a variety of technological devices.

My Project

We are in need of headphones for our classroom to use with our student laptops. These headphones are needed in order to use all of the features these laptops and online programs have to offer.

Using all senses is a valuable tool while learning.

When students are able to listen to a story while reading the words they are able to improve their fluency, accuracy, ‚Äčand vocabulary. Headphones are also a great way to block out background noise and help students concentrate while learning.

Without headphones, students are unable to complete online assignments or view online lessons. These lessons include online math lessons which recap what I have taught. Listening to and watching these lessons are extremely valuable for students who need to be retaught a concept or for students who are absent and miss the instruction.
