Ms. Watson from Las Vegas NV is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Would Love to be Able to Hear!

My students need headphones for computers to hear information needed on school wide computer programs, presentations or videos for research. Headphones would also help them to able to hear pronunciations of words they are working with.

My Students

My students are hard workers and love learning new skills and concepts. Most of my students are English Language Learners with parents from all over the world. There are at least 4 different home languages that my students in class speak, other than English. We have Spanish, French, Swahili, and Mali, just to name a few. Our school is located in Las Vegas, NV in an area that is known to be lower socioeconomically. All my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. This gives them the fuel and energy they need daily to focus and learn all that they have to.

Seeing and hearing how words and images can translate between all languages has been very enlightening to my students (and to their parents).

My Project

In class we look up new and/or vocabulary words on the internet. We use the pronunciation to hear the words pronounced correctly, so that we are practicing correctly. This especially helps with English language learners.

We also do research that requires us to listen to videos to gather our information.

With headphones we will be able to hear and not be all scrunched over a speaker, trying to listen while other students in the class scrunch over their speakers to listen to theirs.

Headphones would be used so that we could hear our school-wide computer program that we are to be on 20 mins. a day.
