Mice to Navigate Laptops

My students need mice to help them move around and use our classroom laptops.

My Students

My students are the youngest learners in our public schools. They walk in my door for their first experience in the public school system. With a fun and energizing spirit, we strive to laugh and learn each day. We explore through books, writing, and lots of playing. They come from a wide range of backgrounds that allows us to share and learn culturally from each other.

Our school is very active in encouraging students to explore the world around them, from involvement in after school sports to community service.

Our campus strives to create community and foster student growth outside the classroom. Students are given opportunities to participate in activities such as Battle of the Books, Science Fair, Oral Language, Student Council, Track Meet, SWAAT (Students with an Aptitude to Teach), Bank of America Speech Contest, and Student Valet.

My Project

As we move into a more technological society, the expectations become greater in school for students. My students are expected to utilize laptops in the classroom on a daily basis. However, for many of them, this is a huge challenge. By having these mice plugged into the laptops, it will make computer time so much easier and engaging for the students.

These smaller mice are designed to fit the tiny hands my students have, allowing them to learn quickly how to maneuver a mouse and navigate around the laptop.

Technology will become more accessible to all students in my classroom. The computer time for each student will become more engaging with higher interaction and learning. It becomes a win-win situation for each student in our class.
