My Students

This year will be the fourth year for my school to be opened. Each year, we have been faced with changes to the school due to overcrowding. Even with all the changes my district has made to help with our school being overcrowded, I currently have 24 Kindergarten students. One thing that has not changed are my goals for my students. I want to meet the needs of all my students academically and socially.

I want to provide opportunities for my students to develop the skills needed to be successful in the classroom.

Kindergarten should be every child's favorite year and I want them to be excited about school. I look forward to a new school year and a new group of energetic and enthusiastic students.

My Project

My students use headphones daily during reading and math instruction. Students use headphones at the listening center, computers, and iPads. Wireless Noise Canceling Over-the-Ear Headphones would help students focus on the lessons by keep noise distractions out.

In order for my classroom to run effectively, I need technology that easily supports and is user friendly for 5 year olds.

Many times I will begin a small group lesson only to be interrupted by students having issues with headphones. Common problems with wired headphones are they get tangled up, the volume isn't working due to damaged wires. Young kids tend to put the wires in their mouth and chew on the cords causing the headphones to quit working.

I currently have a few Wireless Noise Canceling Over-the-Ear Headphones and my students love using them. Students say they can hear better, the headphones are more comfortable, and they are not confined to one spot. I like them because no one is chewing on the cords and getting all tangled up. I want to stop loosing instructional time due to headphone issues. Please help us get untangled!
