Audio Visual Interactions Oh My!

Help me give my students a great audio visual experience for interactive learning! In our classroom we use our projector on the whiteboard to enhance learning topics with videos, interactive games, and video field trip experiences!

My Students

Hello Friends! I teach inclusive Preschool in MA.

Our student population is made up of many cultures including 27 different countries and languages!

Our students are beautiful children who are eager to learn! We help our students become a community through academics, social skills, language, music and hands-on learning!

My school is a Title I school located in the inner city that has over 87% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch rate.

Therefore, our students do not have access to many experiences outside of the classroom. In order to provide extra resources and experiences for our students, we provide our own funding.

Our school motto is, "Expect the Best!" which applies to both students and teachers too! Thank you for your help in providing the best for my students!

My Project

In our Preschool classrooms, our students enjoy interactive learning experiences! We have a variety of themes including Community, Our World, Families, and Living Things. Along with reading books, our students enjoy learning songs and dramatic play to actually be the topic we are learning about.

Since our students don't have access to oceans, farms, and locations in our topics, we like to bring those places to them!

By using our computer and projector, our students have explored the seas, farms, zoos, and other countries! We enjoyed Chinese New Year dances and a virtual field trip to the coral reef! Unfortunately, we use a whiteboard and mini projector, resulting in glare and less crisp pictures. We would really like our students to have a full experience and a screen would allow us to do so!

In addition to that, speaker audio wires would allow us to increase the volume of the speakers in our music and video experiences would allow our children to get more insight.

It would also allow us to access more media on devices in our classroom.

Thank you so much for your donations and support!
