My Students

I teach nine turning ten year old students. I teach all subjects every day. My students love to be challenged, but need a variety of learning styles to be met to motivate the challenge within each of them.

I have a variety of learning levels in my class.

It is a challenge for me to meet each students needs in every subject. Having an Elmo would help my students of all levels be engaged and involved in all subject matter.

My student demographics consists of thirty-six percent being eligible for free & reduced lunch. Also, our student body is thirty-five percent Native American. We are a small rural school. Help us to stay on the cutting edge of technology.

My Project

A document camera will be used to review concepts on our SmartBoard. The Elmo will help review math and reading concepts and this will allow my students to participate with the lesson being taught.

A document camera will help our students project their current work onto the SmartBoard and allow students an opportunity to share and have a voice with classmates and the teacher.

This document camera will help visual learners understand lessons at their full potential. The teacher will model lessons in every subject and project them on our interactive whiteboard to have students fully engaged during instruction. My students will enjoy this new piece of technology.
