My Students

My students come to school eager to learn and interact with their peers and teachers. It is often difficult to get them to leave at the end of the day because a classroom is a safe and exciting place for them. They come from a community that is low income (100% receive free breakfast and lunch) and often are faced with more challenges than a child should ever have to face. Most are children of immigrants, if not immigrants themselves. It is a high needs district many being English Learners or Special Eduction students. They never fail to amaze me in their hard work and we challenge each other everyday.

My Project

A document camera allows my students to see models and examples of the work they have to do. Modeling is a key component to instruction and my students need teacher and peer modeling to succeed in their education. This is also an outlet to allow students to share their work. This gives them a voice and a moment to feel proud in front of their peers. Without a document camera I cannot effectively share my own or students' work to the entire class. This give all student access to the instruction that they need. I will use this for writing such as showing the different stages of a writing process. I will use this in math to show manipulatives such as fraction circles and games instruction to deepen understanding. Finally, this tool will be used for students to show their understanding to myself and their peers. This includes sharing writing, math work, science journal pages to facilitate discussions. This is a must have in my fourth grade classroom and will be used every single day!
