The Sound of the Future

My students need the headphones, sequencing puzzles and a positional words resource box.

My Students

My class is filled with 11 extremely lively and sweet little people. We have some young children that are very artistic and love to draw. Some are very articulate and love to talk and tell stories. Some came into the classroom quite timid, but are always growing in confidence. One is developing their voice and is constantly improving.

These children bring happiness to my days.

I am hoping that my children will have the opportunity to experience some amazing things!

My Project

With the headphones my children will be allowed to use the technology without the distraction of outside noises. Some become easily distracted and by having the sound focused in their ears they will be more attentive to it.

The purpose for the puzzles is to help children in learning the correct order of numbers in a fun way.

They are fascinated by puzzles and this will also help them to see the numbers on a consistent basis.

My children have struggled with prepositions, so I felt that by having something that they can play with as well as practice the words it will be much easier for them to internalize it.
