Wireless Mouse Puts It in the Hands' of the Kids
My students need a rug that provides an organized arrangement to seat our increased number of students. We also need a mouse that enables students to interact.
Can you imagine being one of 28 kids trying to find room to sit without bumping into another person when you are all crammed into a small space? Currently our students don't have an organized way to place themselves in order to maximize the time they learn.
The population of our school has a large percentage of students that receive free and reduced lunch.
This means that most of them are coming from homes without the means to supply some of the most basic things their children need, let alone larger priced items to support a classroom.
With larger class sizes, instruction must still be engaging and interactive. The best ways to do this with 7-8 year olds is to put the learning in their hands. A wireless mouse can move around the room and provide interaction with whatever it is that is displayed on our computer's projector.
Another means of keeping kids of this age engaged is allowing for different places to teach from in the classroom. These kids need to move and can't be at a desk at all times throughout the day. Having a carpet gives us the space we need to spread out yet stay close to where the action is.
Overall, with your help, students will have a few more opportunities for learning in the way that they learn best.
These two simple items can make a large difference. Students otherwise struggle to concentrate and stay focused on solid learning.
