My Students

Our school consists of students in grades PreK-5. They come from various backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. We are a very diverse school district with a low socioeconomic background. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

I never imagined that when my students and I said goodbye in March it would mean that it was our last day in our classroom.

However, the year and learning together is not over yet!

My students and I have embarked on the distance learning journey! We are actively engaging in all sorts of different online platforms and learning new things together. My students and I participate in Zoom meetings to introduce new material, and to check in with each other. I absolutely love seeing their smiling faces. I am amazed by their level of engagement and participation, and families' willingness to try new things.

My Project

A document camera is a great tool that will allow me to create visual presentations to my students via Zoom, enabling students to become fully engaged during lessons. With the magnetic letters I can complete phonemic awareness and word building activities to strengthen my students reading skills.

With a document camera, lessons are transformed into interactive and engaging learning experiences as if my students were sitting right there with me!

I can easily share information and hands on activities with my students. Having a doc cam during Zoom meetings will be a real game changer, allowing my students to closely see visuals such small manipulatives, magnetic letter and word building tiles. Our greatly missed storytime together will be visually possible, once again!

This technology will expand learning opportunities to my students by increasing access to real-time lessons with the creation of our new distance learning classroom.
