Help me give my students a microphone system that will enable them participate in classroom activities confidently and engage in our morning meetings!
I have a large group of students in a very rural school. Because of distance and socioeconomic factors, most of my students haven't had the opportunity to attend preschool or other educational settings prior to their kindergarten experience. They are eager to learn and participate, but many are hesitant because they do not have the confidence or experience of participating and speaking up in group activities.
We start each day off with a "morning meeting" - this time of day is everyone's chance to share what they consider to be important information for their friends and teachers to know.
Grandma might be coming to visit or the dog might be sick -by knowing this information I can help them be successful because it provides the connections for building on throughout the day during academic activities as well.
Our morning meeting has proven to be a great community and relationship builder for our classroom environment. Our problem is that we are in an old building with loud ceiling fans and heating systems. We love our school, but the environmental noises make it difficult to hear some of quiet shy students when it is their turn to participate!
This microphone system will help my quieter, less confident students be able to engage in classroom meetings and academic activities. Our class is large and there is a lot of environmental noise that we have to overcome so this would be the perfect tool to allow all students to be heard and engaged in morning meetings and academic activities. We would also use it to share our stories from writing workshop, perform our readers' theaters, and take turns explaining math equations as well as reading out loud.
I believe the excitement of using microphones for kindergarten and first-grade students would outweigh the nerves and hesitation of my more shy students as well as further excite and motivate my confident students to engage in all classroom activities.
It would be a tool that would be well used in my classroom!
