My Students

I have 13 of the greatest 1st graders! I love them so much and want the very best for them! Our school is a Title I school, and while our population is unfortunately very poor, we have been SO FORTUNATE with the amount of technology we have been gifted with in our classroom. While I have enough computers and iPads, I have no good headphones to use with them. Headphones are crucial for the quiet, peaceful work centers that are required in 1st grade. Please help me to outfit my technology with proper headphones.

My Project

Again, my classroom is full of awesome technology that we are lucky enough to use and learn with everyday! The problem is, we do not have the headphones needed to use them effectively. I want to utilize technology during small group instruction, which means I need to be reading individually with other students or working one on on with students and I need the room quiet for focus ad concentration. Without headphones, my kids are forced to keep everything on mute, or our classroom is very noisy and disruptive due to 13 iPads and computers all going at once! Having these headphones would be SO HELPFUL so achieve the quiet, calm, learning environment I long for!
