Ms. Hicks from Lindale TX is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Are All Ears!

Help me give my students their own pair of individual headphones to plug into their iPad. We are blessed with 10 classroom iPads, but unfortunately do not have any working headphones that fit our iPads.

My Students

PreK is such an exciting time to learn and grow as it sets the foundation for lifelong learning. I have the sweetest bunch of little people in my classroom this year. I love watching them learn new things as their brains are like sponges- soaking up every little thing. My students are very special and unique in their own ways. It is important that no matter how different we all are, we learn how to be kind to one another. I teach at a Title I school serving low income students and families.

My Project

We are extremely blessed to be rich in technology and have 10 classroom iPads that we use on a daily basis. We use these iPads independently and with a partner in stations. Listening to Ebooks, tracing letters/numbers, assessments on iStation, and researching the letter of the week are just a few examples of how we use these iPads in our daily station rotations. We do not have headphones for these iPads. As you can imagine, with 10 iPads being used, it can get pretty loud and distract other students who are trying to work. If my students had their own pair of Snug Headphones, they could focus and be more engaged in their learning and research on their iPad. Having their own pair will not only help eliminate germs and lice, but it will also teach them ownership and responsibility. My students would be so excited to receive their own brand new headphones to help them be independent learners!
