At the beginning of the year, I wrote a post that gave you tips for the beginning of the year. One of those tips included something I have found that is a voice saver! I stumbled onto using a voice amplifier when I had a student who received support services. One of the modifications for this student was that I use small battery operated microphone that I wore when teaching. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this not only helped the student that it was intended for but also my other students and me, too! I found my other students tuned in more the year when I used the voice amplifier. It worked as a visual and auditory cue system. When I put it on my students knew I was getting ready to say something that they needed to pay closer attention. The sound of my voice projected better so I didn’t strain my voice and it was easier for my students to hear it.
After that experience I wanted a voice amplifier of my own to use each year. Unfortunately, the system the district provided followed the student and the district didn’t provide teachers a system without a student who needed the modification. I was so happy when Voice Booster contacted me about their system because it is affordable. The Voice Booster system starts at $59. Many P.T.A. groups are looking to purchase resources for teachers. This would be the perfect request because it helps all of the students and the teacher, too!
