Shh! We're Trying to Read
My students need noise canceling headphones to help them concentrate on their independent reading.
We are the Rockets! In my special education classroom, some students need to read aloud, while others need absolute silence to comprehend what they have read. Noise canceling headphones would greatly boost the student's confidence in their independent reading.
My students are 4th and 5th graders with learning disabilities.
Each day they face many distractions while reading. Our school is right next to a railroad track and everyday at 10:00 we get to listen to what we call the "Reading Train's" continuous whistle blow. This is just one distraction my students deal with.
We are currently at a medium poverty level and that level is rising each year. My students have many obstacles to overcome in and out of school. Just recently they have discovered that reading can take them anywhere in the world. If we can limit the noise distractions with headphones, my students will have a great opportunity to increase their independent reading comprehension skills.
With your help in purchasing the noise canceling headphones, students will be able to concentrate and comprehend what they read. The headphones will help increase students' comprehension skills, which will help them get that much closer to reading at their grade level. Their confidence will sky rocket and they will finally get to enjoy reading at school.
This project is important to me because I love reading and I want my students to love reading too.
I want them to experience the feeling of getting lost in a good book without being distracted. I am always looking for ways to help my students overcome their disabilities and headphones would help immensely.
