Capture the Moment

My students need two video camcorders to improve their reading fluency and oral presentations.

My Students

Do you get butterflies in your stomach when you have to get up and present in front of a group?

My students are hard working, want to learn, and have big dreams.

My students learn the best when they are excited about what they are doing. We are a public school that is located 15 minutes from the heart of our capital city. My classroom has a wide range of learning abilities and a wide range of behaviors.

My Project

With the video camcorders my students will be able to work on their reading fluency and oral presentations. We will use these camcorders to record Reader Theaters, to record the students reading a weekly reading assignment, and to record oral presentations. We will also use them to record other experiences we have as a group, like study trips, science experiments, author talks, and convocations.

Your donation will help 24 students work on their reading fluency.

It will also help them work on their oral presentations too. Being able to read and speak out loud is a skill that my students will use for the rest of their life. Thank you for you support.
