Quiet And Comfort With Quality Headphones!

My students need quality headphones in order to hear and do the important work at their computer stations!

My Students

My students are hardworking and fun loving, second graders! My group of second graders are so energetic and eager to learn. During both my reading and math blocks, students have a rotation at computer stations. The use of a good quality set of headphones is necessary to ensure that the students will have their laptops loud enough so that they can hear materials being read aloud to them.

My school is a Title One school, which means more than half of the students attending the school qualify for free or reduced price lunch.

These students most likely don't have the necessary resources at home to explore learning in an engaging way. All they need are the tools within the classroom to help them be successful.

My Project

The use of headphones is a daily activity in my classroom, both in reading and in math. With small group instruction, there is always a computer rotation group. The headphones allow students to work quietly without being disturbed or disturbing others. What becomes a problem is the fact that the headphones never seem to last. By having a good quality set of headphones, there will not be the distraction of having to find a pair that works or having to lower the computer volume to complete the lesson!

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
