My Students

My 3rd grade class has been using the classroom computers to access math and reading web pages to increase their math and reading skills. The children would like headphones that are comfortable and easy to use, plus these fit their little heads. :-)

I teach an amazing group of 3rd graders.

They are a diverse group from different cultures and socioeconomic levels. The children love technology and have the desire to learn more about it and learn more ways to use it constructively. Having a class if 26 students doesn't leave a lot of room for privacy on the computers. These headphones will allow the children their privacy while accessing educational web sites and doing research on different topics. Thy will be able to hear the music and interact easier with the computer while being fulling engages with the activity. I am hoping this will help the children get more quality time on the computer which in turn will add to their desire to learn more about the topic or technology.

My Project

The children will use these headphones 4 times a week, 20 minutes each time. They will access them 2 times during reading centers and 2 times during math. They will also be accessing the computer for different research projects throughout the school year.

These headphones will make a huge difference for my students because the children on the computers can hear what they are working on and the rest of the class won't be distracted by the noise of the small headphones being used now.
