My Students

Can you imagine being 10 years old and having the opportunity to learn according to your interests? Being able to teach by differentiating materials is important.

Having individual sets of headphones will help to match students with materials that will meet their needs academically.

Many of my students come from families that have low income and minimal formal education. About 80% of my students receive free or reduced lunch. With the economy in the crisis it is in, getting help from families that are struggling is not possible. Please help my students become more active learners.

My Project

My fifth grade students, have their own school issued Macbook. It is a wonderful learning tool to differentiate learning. However, I would be able to better utilize this technology. If students all had their own set of headphones to use during instruction, they could all listen to different articles or educational videos, which would make learning a much richer experience for them. Making learning more individualized to their individual learning styles will only benefit my students

Making learning match individual student interests is very important in student success.

Being able to differentiate assignments will lead to higher student success and more positive attitudes. You can help make a HUGE difference in the learning styles my future 5th graders, as well as impact their attitudes about school!
