The students in my 3rd grade class come from all different backgrounds and cultures. With that, they also have a variety of ways in which they learn the best.
Some of my students need complete quietness to do their best on their schoolwork, others like soft music to help them concentrate and stay focused.
I like to make sure I'm prepared to offer multiple options to students in order for them to learn in the way that best suits their learning style.
I am requesting a class set of headphones that my students can plug into their Chromebooks. This technology will not only assist them when on educational websites, but it will be beneficial to my English Language Learner students. My students need to have many opportunities to hear lots of speech and patterns in speech. By hearing the English language, students will be exposed to lots of new words that they haven't heard before. By knowing more words, they can begin to read and write more words on the paper. Headphones will be helpful to keep a quiet learning environment for those students that need quietness too.
