Ms. O. from Saint Louis MO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the opportunity to fully engage with headphones, allowing them to turn up the tablet volume during Silent Center time. Using a stylus will help keep the screen clean.
My students regularly deal with trauma in many forms: poverty, homelessness, hunger, abuse, imprisonment of family members, etc. Their young minds often find it difficult to concentrate on their studies for any length of time.
All of my students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.
Often, school meals are the only food they eat in a day. Concentration and putting forth the energy needed for learning is difficult, although they are curious. My students crave new experiences and information.
My students like to experiment with different types of technology and media. I love watching them make connections in our ELA center activities.
The headphones will allow the students to turn up the volume on their tablets so they can use some of our most popular apps during Silent Center time. Included in our most popular apps is a read along option.
Being read to several time a day gives early readers a leg up toward becoming great readers themselves.
Without headphones, the students would not have the option to be read to during Silent Center time.
Using the stylus pens on our tablets will help our screens stay clean and our classroom stay healthy. Our kids need every boost they can get to help them be at school every day.
