Mr. Farrell from East Elmhurst NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Small Heads, Big Problem

My students need headphones that are small enough to fit their little heads. I am requesting 20 sets of headphones for students in the Pre-K program at my school.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school recently expanded to include four full-day Pre-Kindergarten classes. Many of the younger, smaller children that enter my computer lab have difficulty keeping standard sized headphones on their head.

Our school is located in a culturally diverse neighborhood within a large metropolitan area.

We have a large immigrant population that represents many cultures throughout the world. Like most children, our students face obstacles in attaining their educational goals. Many of our children face the addition challenge of having to be proficient in more than one language.

My Project

Imagine a room full of little three and four year olds sitting at their own computer. Now, envision the difficulty a child has trying to use a computer with one hand while their other hand is tethered to headphones that keep falling off their head.

The headphones I am requesting are specifically designed to fit younger children.

With properly fitted headphones, my younger, smaller students will be able to fully concentrate on the skills they are trying to master rather than being distracted by headphones that constantly fall off. Although the parents, students, and staff of our school work well together in reaching our student's goals, we need your help. Please consider donating to this project.
