Mrs. Garner from Booneville AR is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Quiet Please I’m Trying to Learn!

My students need headphones to help maintain focus while working on projects, online learning or listening to books.

My Students

Our school is in a rural area with over 90 percent free or reduced lunches. I have 21 students in my class. I’ve had to help some of my students with basic supplies like shoes and even coats.

The student in my class are energetic and as with most children curious.

They love to get involved in the learning process. They deserve to have the best. All I’m asking for is to make their learning more engaging thus helping them as much as I can.

My Project

I have several students that have a hard time focusing while working independently on research projects or online leveled work due to classroom noise levels. Third graders can become excited when discovering facts about their research topics. This excitement then demands the attention of those that are easily distracted. The learning of these students may be temporarily disrupted or loss for the day.

If my students had access to headphones the noise of their classmates could easily be blocked out.

Thus students stay on task longer and learning continues.

The Sony headphones I’m requesting will make learning much quieter and better for the entire class.
