My Students

My first graders are so eager to learn and grow as readers and they love to use technology. We have several reading and math resources they can use on the iPads and computers. We are also mandated to do reading testing on the iPads and students need to be able to practice their skills daily.

I am working hard to prepare my first graders for their futures by using the many digital learning tools that we have available to our classroom.

They are so excited to learn more and become independent learners. I feel so good when they tell me about their ideas and how they want to learn more about the world.

My Project

These headphones will help my students experience success on a daily basis. My students are required by our state to take assessments with their district-issued iPads. My students also use their iPads for daily activities and center rotations for literacy activities. Many students do not have headphones, which are required for assessments. We are struggling to find headphones that will last and are affordable. Several students did not bring any headphones with them at the beginning of the year, and many of the headphones that were brought are already broken. High quality headphones that will stay at school are vital to my students success.
