If your child still does not have headphones at school, please send them to school. Students are required to have headphones for literacy lab, and we use headphones on a daily basis in the classroom for literacy stations and math stations.
Some students have not had headphones at school all year. Lack of headphones makes the learning environment noisy, and difficult for students to concentrate on their work.
Therefore, I am asking you to please send headphones to school if your child does not have any. If you are unsure about whether or not your child has headphones at school, I sent a message to you about this a couple weeks ago, and I will be sending out reminders again this week.
I understand that it is late in the school year, but keep in mind that the headphones you purchase can be reused next school year. Please keep in mind that for literacy lab, students must have USB headphones, or preferably A/V jack headphones with a USB adapter (see below). In my personal opinion, the USB adapters that you can attach to regular A/V jack headphones are more sturdy and break less often than the USB headphones.
Inexpensive options for headphones:
Volume-limiting kids headphones (can order from target.com)
A/V jack kids headphones (available at Target at the HIP)
Over the ear headphones (Walmart)
USB headphones (Walmart)
Amazon Basics lightweight headphones (A/V jack)
USB adapter (to be used with regular A/V jack headphones)
Thank you for your cooperation!!
