My Students

I have an awesome second grade class that loves learning! They each have their own very unique abilities and enthusiasm. Each day, I incorporate guided reading, Daily 5 stations, writing, guided math centers and all kinds of fun learning centers to help meet the individual needs of the children in my classroom.

This year, the district has provided an iPad for each of my students.

The kids love to use all of the various educational materials that are available on the device.

My Project

My second grade students use iPads to work on learning programs such as eSpark, Study Island, MAP testing, and more. While these programs provide great learning opportunities for the child using the tablet, they can be a distraction to the other children who are trying to do some other type of work. Working with the volume very low or muted impedes learning because the children cannot hear the necessary instructions for the task at hand.

New headphones would allow my students to continue to receive differentiated instruction via the iPad without distracting the other children from their work.

Thank you for your support!
