Mr. Higgins from Jersey City NJ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Music Excites the Mind Body and Soul!

My students need the Monster Rockin Roller Portable Water Resistant Wireless Speaker so that we can take our classes outside and have the ability to play music and also be heard from a distance.

My Students

My students come from a diverse urban community which lacks the opportunity for outside play. Playgrounds and parks are very scarce in the surrounding area. Students in the community often times turn to sidewalks, and/or even busy streets for space to play.

My students' high enthusiasm opposes their lack of opportunities and therefore I would like to aid in their growth and development.

My students live in a diverse city with an array of ethnicities and income levels. Often times our Physical Education class provides the only opportunity for exercise our students will be exposed to throughout the day.

My Project

I plan to use the Wireless speaker when the weather gets nicer. I would like to take the class outside in order to enjoy the outdoors. My students, along with a lot of the today's youth, hardly play outside due to either violence or lack of parental supervision. Therefore I attempt to take my classes outside as much as possible (weather permitting).

The speaker will also provide an entertainment value with the music we will be able to play during class.

We have a way to play music inside of our gymnasium but we lack mobility. I also intend to use the speaker for any outdoor events we put on for the students so that we can liven any event with music.

Lastly the jumbo cards will allow us to incorporate another dimension to our class with the games we can play. The majority of my students have never played with cards before so we have attempted teaching them but we lack suitable cards. The jumbo cards will provide a gymnasium feel for the younger kids and will withstand the inevitable punishment.
