Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 18

Thank you for fulling our grant!

 

With a group of 18 young enthuastic learners, technology plays an important role in our daily learning.  Our new headphones compliment and support our curriculum with the use of computers and ipads.  Students have been able to successfully complete reading, math, and coding programs on our ipads with reliable headphones.  Learning how to use these new items responsibily has also allowed our students to learn independence in self-care and become "tech-support" helpers in hooking up hardware (headphones) and adjusting volume.  While this may seem like a small accomplishment to some, in Kindergarten world, this is a huge step in growing our fine motor skills and following multi-step directions.

Original Grant Overview

Goal

Technology is part of our everyday curriculum, and a class set of headphones would enhance our daily learning. Our goal is to have new headphones to replace the broken headphones so students can use ipads and computers without distractions. 

 

What will be done with my students

My students will continue to use programs, such as IStation, STMath, MyOn, and other computer programs without distraction with good working headphones. Currently, only 5 students have working headphones. Students log onto these programs for intervention and daily and need this extra support to help them focus on the task at hand.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will not only use these headphones for daily technology use, but they will also learn independent self-care skills by knowing how to access, use, and put away working headphones on their own. Kindergarten students thrive on being confident, and will learn how to be responsible with a new item just for them. Headphone cubbies are labeled so each student has their own space to take care of their own item. Unfortunately, many headphones have broken due to normal wear and tear, along with having used old headphones from past students that are in need of replacing. 

 

Describe the Students

I have students with a variety of needs and levels, but all students will benefit and focus on the task at hand without any other distractions while using headphones in daily technology work. 

 

Budget Narrative

This budget is for two sets of 8 headphones, totally 16 for my class. Thank you for your consideration in funding our grant.
