My Students

My students are greeted at the door every single morning. They are asked how their day is and they immediately run to greet their classmates. They are reminded throughout the day that they are kindergarten role models, as they are constantly setting the example for others.

My classroom is full of 21 energetic students who see the bright side in everything they do.

They come from a low-income neighborhood and many from Spanish-speaking families. They come in with minimal knowledge of how books work, and very little knowledge of the English alphabet and the letter names and sounds. With parents who speak very little or no English, we must take any route possible to help our students reach grade-level standards.

My Project

My students currently have a listening center with wired headphones, but the connection has not been working. They have been using the listening center on loud, which distracts their classmates from doing their own jobs.

We need wireless headphones to help us become better readers!

Using these headphones allows us to listen to stories on CD and develop a sense of reading fluency. We can interact with these stories and with our group to become stronger readers.

These wireless headphones will allow us to get right to work without having to untangle wires and without playing the book super loud and distracting our classmates who are also working hard!
