Ipads & Headphones
- Please ensure that all iPads are changed to 100% daily. This is very important! It ensures your child is fully prepared for all classroom activities. We have been emphasizing how your child should talk to you to establish a charging routine, as it is their responsibility to charge. Where will the iPad be charged? When will I put it on the iPad? Please review with your child.
- Also, your child needs a pair of headphones/earbuds at school. Either one is fine. We don't have a preference.
- The primary use for the headphones at school is for the iPad. Some headphones do not sync up with the iPads. (We wish we knew more about why this happens, but we don't. There isn't a brand or particular kind that we see not "communicating." It is slightly random. If you know more, please share with us. We pride ourselves in trying to stay tech savy, but this one is just a mystery to us.) If your child tells you, "my headphones don't work," please test it out on their iPad. Sometimes, headphones can work on an iPhone or laptop, but not on their iPad. (Trust me: It has happened to both our daughters!) Please replace any headphones that are not compatible with the iPad. Feel free to use them at home with other devices.
- Do you have broken headphones? Don't throw them. You can reuse them in many ways. If the cord is broken, cut it off. You will have a brand new pair of noise cancelling headphones! Your child can use these to mow the lawn or read a book without distraction.
