My students need an Easyshare digital camera for their classroom so they can continue to make class books about their favorite topic ~ themselves!
My kindergarten class is located in a high-need area that is home to several children with disabilities.
In my classroom the children spend a lot of time composing their own reading materials. The children and I take pictures of everything that happens in our classroom. We write text to go along with the pictures, bind it into book form and place it in our reading corner so we can revisit it on a daily basis. Because these books are about their favorite topic ~ themselves ~ the children read and reread them at every opportunity. It is a wonderful way to engage beginning readers in the reading process.
In order for me to facilitate my children with this process we desperately need a digital camera as mine recently bit the dust after many years of use. This time of year is crucial to teaching five and six years old how to read and this is the foundation of our program. Without a digital camera my children will be at a serious disadvantage.
Your generous donation will ensure that my children will be able to continue making their own class books with quality pictures of themselves in action. You will help them to see themselves as authors, illustrators, photographers and most importantly ~ readers. Please take the time to fund this worthy project and make a difference in the life of a child. Thank you!
