TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need earbuds to use when using iPads for class projects and research. The cases will give them somewhere to keep their own earbuds without losing them.
My greatest joy is seeing the light in their eyes when they discover something independently! " Now, I understand," or " Oh, I see how that works!" My 4th grade science classroom is a place of challenge and discovery. Students spend this year learning the foundation of knowledge and skills they will need as they move forward in advanced studies of weather, astronomy, energy, and organisms.
Our 4th graders are amazing, creative, and curious students who mostly come from high poverty, low economic, households.
They like to move, they love to learn and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way.
I am requesting a pair of earbuds and a case for each student that I teach. Each student already has an iPad on which we constantly use to research information for our science lessons weekly through programs such as PBS kids, Epic and many more!
The classroom can often be noisy and many students get distracted by the noise of other iPad programs.
If each student were to have their own personal set of earbuds, this would allow them to listen to ebooks and other information privately and focus more on their learning. Students would also learn the responsibility of keeping their own materials together.
