HELP! My 23 kindergrtners utilize our classroom computers daily. Up until now, I have purchased inexpensive headphones from our local department store. Needless to say, the headphones are not meant for "little fingers" on a daily/hourly basis. Hence the need for a new pencil sharpener also!
I have the best class of 23 kindergarten students.
My students attend an elementary school that contains Pre-K through 5th grade, totaling about 500 students. My kindergarten class is one of four kindergarten classes. My students are full of energy and have such a great thirst for knowledge. Their busy little bodies are constantly on the go searching for new ways to learn and explore the unknown.
We have four computers in our classroom. These computers are used during center time, as well as through the day to utilize a district purchased educational computer program. The computer program requires the students to closely listen to directions and/or phonetic sounds. The headphones I have purchased in the past are simply not made for the daily wear and tear of five and six year olds. The headphones break easily and do not withstand the needed utilization. The Lakeshore Learning headphones are specifically engineered to withstand my busy kindergrtners. With this being said, our electric classroom pencil sharpener is worn out. Students and I try to use our wall-mounted pencil sharpener but have a difficult time with the noise it produces and blisters that come along with the continuos sharpening. A new, quiet, pencil sharpener is needed so I can continue teaching and students can continue learning in our new quiet learning environment!
My students have the desire to learn and therefore I want to offer very opportunity possible.
Headphones will give my students, and future students, a chance to concentrate during center time and during individual computer time. By decreasing computer noise, students working on and off the computers, will be able to concentrate and more learning can take place. A new, quieter pencil sharpener will not only give my students a quieter learning environment, but will give my blisters a break!Read More
