Shhhhhh I Can't Hear

Help me give my students headphones for technological devices. This will help provide my students with a quiet working environment, which boosts focus and understanding of the learning activities.

My Students

I consider myself very fortunate to work daily with children. The students at my school are an amazing group, who all possess unique qualities. I love the diversity within our school. I have 8 languages represented in my classroom alone. One important part of my class is making each other feel welcome. The students at my school and in my class continue to impress me every day with the care and support they give each other.

My students love to read and use technology whenever the opportunity presents itself.

They really enjoy using iPads or computers to take AR tests, complete literacy activities, and to read stories at their current reading level.

My Project

In first grade we engage in many activities on technological devices that are accompanied with sound. Students engaged in Reading A-Z, which is a reading program that requires them to listen to the story before reading it themselves and answering comprehension questions. They also participate in math games that require them to listen to directions. We are also implementing programs that provide ESL students with support in their native language.

Students use the devices to engage in independent activities based on their learning needs, so without headphones it can be hard for students to focus and stay engaged.

The headphones help provide a quiet learning environment, which results in better engagement from the students.
