Mrs. Malan from Sandy UT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

WE Need to HEAR!

My students need headphones for their fluency practice in math and their phonics practice in reading. We have headphones that are tired and won't work anymore. These new headphones will be great!

My Students

Our students are ravenous readers, writers, and learners always trying new things in our classroom. This coming year we are being introduced to new apps and technology in our new school. With 104 students it will be helpful to have new headphones to use for our iPads and Chromebooks.

We are always trying new teaching techniques and love to technology to make learning fum and engaging.

With this technology the headphones are a must. We have headphones that won't work, wires that are frayed, and headphones that only work in one ear.

My Project

We are a 2nd grade team working with 104 kiddos. Currently we have headphones to share with 5 classes. The headphones we currently have are tired and not helpful. We need to be able to hear our instructions. Our lessons are individualized to the child's needs, which means everyone is on a different lesson and getting different instructions. The headphones help each child focus during our lessons.

We would love new headphones so we can hear our lessons on the iPad and our Chromebooks.

We spend time each day practicing and have headphones that are broken or only work on one side. It is in deed time for an update!

Thank you for considering our project. We would love to hear our instructions and continue our lessons on our iPads and Chromebooks.
