Being in the 8th grade is all about preparing for high school and being a role model for the younger students in the school, both of which my students are doing with grace so far this year. My students have a wide range of ability levels, and thus need different accommodations in order to successfully learn. We use a software called iReady that helps build and maintain the foundation skills of each student.
A class set of quality headphones will allow me to provide my students the read-aloud accommodations they need when working on the iReady assignments.
These headphones will also help me to practice individualized instruction because each student can be working on something different that pertains to their mathematical goals this year. With a class set of headphones, I can take my students' education to the next level.
With these headphones, my students who require read-aloud activities will always have a tool, even if they do not have headphones of their own. Every student in class will use headphones during iReady instruction, which is an individualized software to build skills needed by each student. Because our school is in a rural area with a majority of students on free and reduced lunch, many students do not have the resources at home to be provided with everything they need for success.
By donating to this project, you will enable each of my students to further their knowledge by hearing the mathematical language used in activities and increase understanding.
In my classroom we use a tactile-representational-abstract approach to learning, and these headphones will help with all three!
