My Students

My students are extremely sweet and unique. Each one has their own little adorable personalities. They are extremely energetic and love to be engaged in music, dance and interactive games. Our school is very vintage and so our classrooms are very outdated. Most of the classrooms still have old chalkboards or have no more than 2 computer in the classroom. We would really benefit by having an interactive smart board. My students love technology but that is something our school lacks. Unfortunately, our funding for technology is very limited, and a smart board will be a wonderful gift for us. It will bring huge and glorious smiles along with numerous memorable educational opportunities to each of my wonderfully energetic 5 and 6 year old students. Please help!

My Project

My students are very energetic and love technology, however our vintage building is very limited on technology. We have only 2 outdated and out of warranty computers in my classroom, and I really want to expose them to more educational learning by using technology.

My kids are very cheerful and become very engaged when I project interactive assignments on large pieces of white foam poster boards that I have velcroed together to enlarge and create a wider projection screen.

I set it up by velcroing it over my tiny old and brittle non-magnetic white board so it can easily be removed when needing to access the old small dry erase board. We would love an upgrade to our self made projection screen by acquiring a new and wider interactive smart board in our classroom. I think a smart board can really be helpful and beneficial to our children because it will keep them engaged and increase participation in all subjects. Please help me to expose them to better technology.
