Think Out Loud: Voice Amplifier

My students need the Wireless Teacher Microphone so that they are able to hear me speaking, no matter where they are in my classroom, without me having to raise my voice

My Students

My students come from various social and economic backgrounds. Being in kindergarten, they are all very excited and eager to learn each and every day! I love to see their excitement when they walk into the classroom each day.

They are very kind and caring and are especially attentive to their special needs classmates.

They love participating in anything that is hands-on, especially if that includes any of my teaching supplies and equipment. I would love to be able to provide them with more hands-on learning resources.

My Project

The teacher microphone's purpose is to make sure my instruction is heard clearly throughout the classroom. It sounds simple, but when the teacher’s voice is heard, the students learn. Research has shown that many students have an auditory learning style. The voice amplification system will help students be able to hear clearly, so that they can learn to grow essential listening skills. This will also help my students develop phonemic awareness, which is the ability to identify and manipulate the unique sounds of language, because they will hear the sounds more clearly. The most important reason we need this system is so that I do not have to raise my voice and repeat myself over and over for students at a distance, that might not hear me the first time.

I do not like to raise my voice, especially since my students are 5 and 6 years old; this system will allow me to speak in a natural voice, reducing stress on my students and myself.
