Lack of headphones and trying to implement eReads

The headphones that I've been given have a very short lifespan. I currently have 7. I have 5 usable desktop computers and can get around 5 laptops from our grade level laptop cart. But only having 7 headphones limits how many computers the kids can use. So they have not been utilizing eReads at all in order to do the mandated quizzes for the year. Does anyone have some kind of system that works for them to where they are able to do everything on a limited amount of headphones? If I let them do eReads during their Student App time then they are not doing the activities they need in Read 180.

    Have you thought about having students using earbuds? They can be purchased for $1 each at stores where everything costs $1. You would need one for each student who is going to use the earbuds. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
