My Students

Our 1st grade classroom is a place of challenge and discovery. We love to incorporate new ideas into our learning, however, there are a lot of times that my students do not have all the materials they need to be successful.

My 1st grade students are clever, creative and eager to learn.

They come to school every day excited to explore all that 1st grade has to offer. They take tremendous pride in their efforts and are always willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning.

My Project

My students need individual headphones to explore new learning technologies in our daily reading, math and science centers. My students will use these headphones to explore their hidden abilities, expand their vocabulary, read exciting new literature independently and take virtual field trips.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 1st grade classroom by building a stronger reader, writer, mathematician and scientist.

Students having access to technology with the use of these headphones will change our students' lives for the better. They will love school and feel successful all while having fun learning. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with technology will increase their chances for a successful future!
