I teach at a Title I school in Florida where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast. In our room there is never a dull moment, but one thing is the same, they all love to move!
My classroom is full of scientists, artists, mathematicians, writers, musicians, readers, historians, and athletes.
I have 21 amazing third graders who come to my classroom from all different backgrounds. My students are full of energy and are highly motivated to learn new things every day. I have students on different levels in reading and math but they all work hard to grow and reach new goals.
Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. In order to help them to be more successful, I'd like to provide them with flexible seating, stress relievers, and headphones to help them focus.
Even if 19 students have a minimal volume on their iPad it still makes it very hard to hear and concentrate. The last set of headphones that I got; many have broke and/or quit working and dollar store ones break and fall apart. It is very noisy and hard to focus without headphones. Please help us to be able to hear again!
By allowing my students to have new, working headphones, they will be able to better focus and I'm sure that I will see many learning gains since focus and concentration will improve.
I just want to be able to provide my students with the best education which I can afford to them.
