Goal

i would like to provide new technology to our kindergarten classes called a Q-ball. Its is throwable microphone ball which engages the students in sharing their thinking and involves all students in listening, speaking and learning. 

 

What will be done with my students

In a recent Cambridge Training, we learned a technique called "shared inquiry." It involves reading a rich text passage to students and asking them to provide answers to higher level thinking questions. The students toss the microphone to each other and speak into the ball for an engaging exchange.  

 

Benefits to my students

The ball provides the tactile technology to hear all students and provides excitement in speaking and listening. This will help students be engaged in the language arts standards of reading, speaking and listening. it will also help English Language learners and hesitant learners to feel empowered to speak. Everyone wants a turn to catch the ball and share! 

 

Budget Narrative

The ball can be shared amongst my team of seven classes and will be a great addition to our language arts program and help facilitate shared inquiry.
