Mrs. Vitale from Ocean Springs MS is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Throw Us Learning to Get Excited About!

My students need two Qball wireless throwable microphones for use in their math/science class and their language arts/social studies classes to keep them engaged and excited about learning.

My Students

I teach 4th-grade students who love, and need, to get up and move! My students are creative, inquisitive, and love to share what they've learned with others. They are also compassionate and caring, eager to help others and themselves to be successful.

We dedicate time each week to sharing our immediate concerns and worries, celebrating our successes, and building community.

My students engage thoughtfully in all genres of reading and are passionate about writing to inform, entertain, and persuade!

My Project

Engaged learners are the most successful, and keeping students engaged in large classes is a serious challenge. These "throwable" Qball microphones will absolutely keep all of my students engaged and enable each one to have a real "voice" through my sound system speakers.

Who doesn't love a good game of catch, and kids will LOVE throwing a ball in the classroom!

Research shows more and more that movement is critical to keeping the brain active and receptive to learning. I can see my students excited to participate in anticipation of "catching" the microphone and sharing their ideas with their classmates.

The Qball is lightweight, soft, and durable...just what my students will want to get their hands on!
