Ms. Menjivar from Charlotte NC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Time Limits and Sound

My students need headphones in order to use their computer programs independently while receiving differentiated lessons without disturbing their peers and the timers are essential for them to learn how to pace themselves on state assessments.

My Students

My English Language Arts room is a place where students can explore! My students walk into my classroom every day ready to learn something new! 90% of my students are English language learners and speak mostly Spanish. They are always so hardworking despite the language barrier and they achieve much growth and success.

All of my students live in low-income inner city areas of high poverty and are unaware of how much they can achieve!

Despite their challenges, they are working hard to better their futures. I am encouraging my kiddies to work to their highest potential, no matter how different that way may be.

My Project

Each students uses a different technology program for reading and math. These programs give differentiated instruction to each student so that they are learning on their lessons through interactive videos, songs, and repeated exercises. With their headphones, students will be able to listen to their activities without disturbing their neighbors.

My students have differentiated needs and timers and headphones will allow them to visualize their timing and the headphones will allow them to access their lesson effectively.

The light timers will accommodate the needs of some of my students with special needs who need visuals in order to gain a sense of time to prepare them for their assessments in 3rd grade.
