My Students

Our school is a very diverse group of students. We have 13 languages represented in our building. These children are mostly from lower social-economic households and many are living in homes with little to no english spoken. The majority of our students are english as second language learners. These children love coming to school and work very hard to overcome the obstacles they face every day, both at home and school. We have parents who want to be involved and do the best they can, but many don't speak the language and are limited as to what they can do to help. They count on the teachers to do everything we can to ready their children for success and further education.

My Project

This fun, throwable microphone ball will make learning fun for the students. It will increase classroom participation and encourage volunteers. When reading/speaking/presenting their content individually to the class as a whole, this fun and exciting microphone will not only make their presentation easier to hear, but will give them the confidence to use their voices and share their thoughts and learning with their classrooms.

When I call on volunteers to participate in class, say to read aloud or share their learning, it is often difficult to hear them speak throughout the whole room.

Often shyness or language barriers are a concern for these kids. This Qball will boost their confidence by making it FUN to speak to the class!
