Three Classrooms, Three Cities

3rd graders participating in "Third Grade City"For the last several weeks, Mrs. Atherine's, Ms. Lavetter's, and Mrs. Wolff's third grade classes have been learning about the components of a city, from government to economy. Each class created a name for their city, and studied the function of businesses with regards to supply and demand. The unit culminated in "Third Grade City," an event where community members are invited in to populate the cities, spending their money on various goods and services. Classes were then able to discuss the successes of each business, helping students understand entrepreneurship and community.

FM Systems Improve Learning Environment for Elementary Students

Mrs. Prevette pictured in front of her SMARTboardMrs. Kristin Prevette, and the majority of the elementary teaching staff can be seen using the FM assistive technology system purchased for elementary classroom use.  FM systems help students to focus on what the teacher is saying so that background noises don’t interfere with their hearing. While students with auditory problems benefit from its use, students with typical hearing benefit as well.  Research from Pamela Millett, in an article titled, “Sound Field Amplification Research Summary” (2008), suggests that all students have a better ability to discriminate words and spoken language, demonstrate improved scores in dictated spelling tests, improve behaviors, and score higher on phonemic awareness tests when the FM systems are in use.  Because students spend a high percentage of their classroom time listening to their teachers, FM systems are an additional way to improve classroom performance. Mrs. Prevette shared that her students often remind her to turn it on because the tone of her voice is not as loud as some other teachers.  She said, “I just love it!”
