Help me give my students headphones to hear important information when they are doing their online work. In a classroom of young students, it is almost impossible to use laptops and tablets without headphones.
My urban ESL classroom is full of energetic, creative, and eager young children. My students are very diverse in their backgrounds and their learning styles as they come from countries around the world.
I teach at a low-income, high-poverty school where 100% of the students get free lunches.
Our school also serves a free breakfast to all students and food is sent home over the weekends to help meet their needs. My goal, as their teacher, is to give them a learning environment where they are comfortable and feel inspired as they are growing and learning.
Donations to my classroom will make a tremendous difference in my students' lives. These young ESL students will be talking, planning, and improving their thinking and mathematical skills while collaborating on their learning as they learn their new language.
Young students learning English rely on many medias to acquire their new language. One of the important tools in the classroom involves online programs specifically designed for each student which includes their native language and English. A first-grade classroom is not always as quiet as needed for the students to hear a laptop or tablet. Headphones would make a huge difference for my students to not only hear their learning programs but to also take their weekly online assessments to show their progress.
This project will fund a classroom set of headphones so each student will have their own tools.
