My students need a digital camera and blank story books so they can become amazing authors!
Kindergartners today face the huge challenge of the increasing demand for academics. In AZ this year's kindergartners are required to pass our state testing at the 3rd grade level for promotion and so the stress of achievement is really high!
My class consists of students representing 10 languages all at varying levels!
My students represent many different backgrounds and experiences ranging from traditional middle class upbringing to being raised in the war zones in Iraq. My students are fun loving, eager to learn, and very cooperative!
Each year I do a project with my students where I take their pictures and incorporate them into books that I make myself. Unfortunately, the technology that I had available to do this is no longer existent. So I am in need of a camera to take pictures of my students working throughout the year.
The books we do represent everything they learned in kindergarten. Using actual photos of themselves as the characters in their stories, the students will document their year in story form. It's a really fun project that I know is a keepsake for their families!
Motivating kindergartners to become Amazing Authors is so important to their future success in school!
Students who are excited about learning reach greater heights and this is something I strive to do each day with my kids. Having a camera to continue the photo portion for this project and the hard bound books are going to allow me to take this project to the next level!
