My classroom is made up of twenty-two boys and girls with various learning disabilities and severe emotional disturbances. My students come to school very eager to learn. They are highly motivated to share their work with others and love presenting to the class. A full one hundred percent of the children are eligible for free breakfast and lunch.
These students have attention deficits, which make traditional paper and pencil writing assignments very difficult.
They have so many wonderful ideas but often find it hard to put those ideas on paper due to their difficulty in maintaining focus. Our kids learn best through varied platforms such as presentations, hands-on manipulatives, and gross motor activities.
In addition to having challenging homes and neighborhood issues, my students have emotional needs and attention deficits that require frequent and varied activity in the classroom.
My students and I are fortunate to have a SmartBoard in our classroom, which is very beneficial to my students. My students have various special needs and other health impairments, so, the SmartBoard is an excellent, interactive tool that I can utilize to meet their varying learning styles. However, the sound on the SmartBoard is low. Therefore, I am requesting a Bluetooth portable speaker so all of my students in the classroom can hear what is being projected from the board at all times, in order to enhance their learning experience.
Please consider donating to this worthwhile project to allow my students with special needs the ability to hear what is being projected from our classroom SmartBoard so we can become better learners!
