Classroom Projector Will Inspire Young Minds

My Students

Technology is our children's future! We need technology now more than ever to help us in our growing classes. Many children learn visually. Projectors in the classroom are an excellent tool to help us teach our children.

My first grade class has a variety of learning styles.

I work diligently to provide them with a broad spectrum of educational materials to support their individual needs. A projector will help the audio/visual learner to create and retain information. My students are inspired by today's interactive technology. If DonorsChoose provided us with a projector, their generosity would help me to motivate my audio and visual learners. A projector would enhance my classroom assignments. It would allow me to magnify our shared writing, read alouds, math manipulatives and art activities. A projector will support hands-on experiences. For example, we will be able to project real money for the children to count, manipulate and examine. Children can make a connection between everyday life and school in a fun and meaningful way.

My Project

My students are visual learners who are creative, amazing and love to learn! I teach first grade and my goal is to enable students to develop and maximize their capabilities by taking advantage of the latest technology. In science, I can provide up close and meaningful curriculum. For example, I can demonstrate the difference between a chrysalis and a cocoon. The children will be able to take advantage of interactive learning and reach their highest level of achievement!

I am challenged everyday to engage my wonderful first graders and a projector will expose them to a new level of understanding and technology.

For this reason, it is so helpful to have grants like the Chevron Classroom Challenge to support these efforts. Thank you for all of the wonderful things that you are doing to enhance our student's education in the 21st Century!
