My Students

My students are very diverse, from many different countries, cultures, and backgrounds. They love to learn and are interested in so many things from space to bike riding to fairytales. They love to experience things hands-on, but that can be difficult in a school and district with limited resources.

The school is the largest elementary school in the district and although the administration really helps out, it is hard to have enough money to provide all of the resources that the students need.

Many of my students are English Language Learners, so they need a variety of differentiated materials to provide the instruction that they need.

My Project

I am requesting headphones, mice and mouse pads for my students. They all have an online literacy program that is individualized for each student. The program audibly tells them what to do and it is hard for them to hear the program without headphones. It is also hard for the students on the computers not to be distracted by the other students and for the other students not to be distracted by the computers. My students also could benefit from new mice for the desktops that we have and mouse pads. Right now, the mice sometimes do not work and we are using books for mouse pads! They would really appreciate some new technology accessories for their online learning.
