My Students

My students are wonderful, imaginative, students who enjoy learning, especially when technology is involved however, many of them face difficulties in their day to day living that makes learning a challenge. My classroom recently received a set of laptops to use in our day to day learning. These laptops are an amazing resource for our students because many of them do not have any kind of technology (smart phones, tablets, iPads, or desk top computers in their homes.) They love using them and are very motivated to learn when they are at their fingertips. However, without having mice, these students who are just learning to navigate a laptop, are becoming very frustrated with the built in mouse pad.

They also find themselves overwhelmed with having to cope with problems in their family situations, their mental health, or learning or behavioral conditions that many of them have.

They could use an area of the classroom to help them manage their big emotions.

My Project

These materials will help my students two-fold. The earbuds and USB mice will help my students have better learning experiences daily when using our class set of laptops. Many of my students get frustrated used the mice pads on our laptops. They are just learning how to use technology because many of them don't have it in their homes. The other items like the sensory toys and sequin pillows will give students kinesthetic ways to manage their difficult emotions. Many of my students cope with issues from abuse, behavioral disorders, mental health, and learning challenges that make coping in the classroom on a day to day basis difficult.
