Mrs. Phillips from Farmersville TX is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Loud and Proud!

Help me give my students a voice! Many students have wonderful ideas and thoughts, but don't feel the confidence to speak loud and proud. With the Q ball students who are a little more timid will shine!

My Students

I teach 9 and 10-year-old. They range in level​ but are ready for a challenge. My students enjoy interactive lessons and a lot of peer collaboration to get a deeper understanding of mathematics and science content. These students love learning and crave new adventures and access to knowledge. Each student is unique and determined to get the most out of learning. I love how insightful and up for the challenge my students are. They are ready for new collaboration and insights from their classmates.

My Project

Students come into a class each day and feel timid or shy with what they know. The Qball microphone will allow those students a big voice.

The device shares the student's response loud so everyone can hear it.

You also get to toss the ball to classmates to encourage more conversations and discussions.

My ultimate goal is to make students feel excited to learn, but also feel what they have to share is valid and important. The Qball microphone gives students confidence in what they have to say, but also brings students out of their comfort zone to push them to share more and own their thinking.
