Listening to Succeed

My Students

I teach 26 second graders in a rural district. A majority of them are free and reduced lunch.

In a time when every thing is digital, my students do not always have access to technology at home.

By allowing them to access the technology at school they are growing within the digital age. Literacy and math are taught in small group workshop style lessons. Students are visiting websites and apps on a daily basis.

My students are enthusiastic, curious learners. They have a strong desire to learn when they are interested and have ownership of their learning. They are social and benefit from cooperative learning.

My Project

Sturdy and durable headphones are a must for my students. Earbuds are not safe or comfortable for young students to use in a classroom setting.

Many students can not afford to purchase their own headphones to use at school.

With the use of 8 pairs of headphones, students will be able to use iPads, chrome books, and other technology. They will be able to plug in and listen without distraction. This will allow them to access a wide variety of apps and websites without worrying about whether they will be able to hear it. Headphones will be cleaned, stored, and shared for all students to use in small groups.
