My Students

Often times my fourth graders are excited about school and run in to the classroom every day with a smile on their face or a hug or high-five. There are a few days when some of my students are sad or grumpy based on what is happening at home. They consider our classroom their School Family because over half of our students are living below the poverty line and several are displaced, living with friends or grandparents due to a parent passing away from drug overdose or in prison for drugs. Students feel safe and loved here. We have a wonderful school that can provide clothing, eye glasses, dentist visits just to name a few things.

With so many girls in my class I am trying to promote math and sciences.

So often, boys take the lead on our classroom discussions but I like to show my female students that they can do anything that they set their mind to! Our classroom library is full of books but I would like to build up my math "library" as well.

My Project

Our school district has been using Singapore Math for many years, and teachers attend summer refresher workshops to keep up to date on this math method. The trainers at this workshop use a document during training and highly recommend using a document camera to teach Singapore math.

Numerous case studies have shown the effectiveness and benefits of these document cameras in the classroom.

They are versatile for all subject areas. One teacher is quoted in saying "The AVer Document Camera has been the best teaching tool I have ever used. I have no regrets about getting the document camera instead of an interactive whiteboard. The document camera has so many more functions and uses than I ever imagined. I continue to find new uses for it almost every day. My lessons and presentations are much more dynamic with the document camera. It makes teaching and learning more exciting. The document camera has helped me become a better teacher." -Mrs. Theresa Brown (Broadneck Elementary School, Arnold MD)

After reading research on the use of document cameras in the classroom, I anticipate using the document camera for more than just math; science, language arts, and classroom management. There are a world of ideas out there and I can't wait to have my students experience learning with the help of a document camera.
