More than a third of students from low‑income households

We Can't Hear the Computer/Tablet!
My students need their own headsets to listen to and record stories at their reading level. I have 30 students in this remedial reading program. Please help!
The students I see are receiving Title I reading support. These 1st and 2nd graders need to hear and practice fluent reading. This can be accomplished having new, working headphones with microphones. By having these headphones, we'll be sanitary while meeting students' needs. Please donate!
My students come from varied cultures and backgrounds.
We are the Title I school in the district. Many of my students are on free/reduced lunch plans; the books I send home with them for reading practice are purchased by me. Many students come from single family homes. I would describe the students as coming from lower income households. In addition to reading with me, these first and second graders need to hear English read fluently via the engaging academic programs purchased by the district. With the limited funds the district has, I find that using Donors Choose is our best option for acquiring necessary materials.
My students are keenly aware of technology! We have iPads and computers, but are lacking the headphones with microphones needed for them to interact with the latest educational programs. These headphones will be assigned to one student only. This will ensure that no germs are passed around. In addition, the students will have the pride of ownership of these headphones for a school year. While it's wonderful to choral read together, it's critical that I hear each student read to ascertain where they are experiencing reading difficulties.
This donation will bring a new dimension to learning in my classroom.
We are not able to use the technological programs we have available to us. How often do you, as a donor, have the opportunity to actually add a new dimension to the learning environment of a classroom? Please consider donating to this project!
