Celebrating Success with Pictures!

The cost of a polaroid camera and film from the Quill Corporation is $224, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Many of the engagement ideas that I have heard from excellent teachers involve the use of instant pictures in the classroom. Some of these involve: -Taking a picture of a student who is doing the correct thing (such as working quietly or helping another student to learn) and putting it on the wall next to the corresponding classroom rule or expectation. -Taking pictures of things around our school to demonstrate various content standards (for examples, taking a picture of 4 cars in a row to discuss fractions, or of a birds nest to discuss different habitats). -Taking pictures of student work that is amazing to display on our "Check Us Out" board. I have tried to buy disposable cameras for this purpose, but this has proven to be way too expensive when including the high cost of the cameras and the developing cost. Not to mention that those cameras cannot deliver the instant benefit that 10- and 11-year olds can best benefit from seeing. I teach 6th grade math and science in East Oakland at Elmhurst Middle School. My students and I appreciate your help in advance!
