My students are part of a low-income/high poverty school district. They love school and show up everyday with a smile on their faces, ready to learn.
My students are loving, bright, energetic and attentive.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." But when they are in my classroom I like to focus on their gifts and abilities that can help them grow. I have no control over their lives once they step outside of school but when they are in my classroom.
We are 1:1 with technology in our classroom and my students enjoy using their iPads to learn and explore new concepts and lessons. Without headphones students are easily distracted and have trouble learning. When all students have working headphones they can be successful. My students come from economically disadvantaged homes so buying headphones is not a priority for their parents. These Lakeshore headphones are durable and good for little hands and ears. Please help my students so they may grow and explore many different ways to use their iPads in the classroom. Thank you so much for helping my students.
