My students in first grade will create a portfolio using a three-ring binder, dividers, and protector sheets that will include their work form the beginning of the year ending with their final work in first grade. This portfolio will include artifacts such as writing samples, math worksheets, art, science projects (photographs), and other activities done throughout the year. My students will benefit from having a digital camera in the classroom because they will be able to take pictures of each other working on different tasks, take pictures of their work that is displayed around the classroom, and activities they participated throughout the school year. These photographs (with their parents' permission) will be displayed in each students' portfolio. I feel that students will be given a lifetime memory of first grade through these photographs. Our school is charter, therefore, we, as teachers are limited to resources because of costs. I would appreciate any help that is given to us to fulfill this activity. The majority of our students participate in a free lunch program; therefore, they might not have a digital camera at home. However, having a digital camera at school will allow them to explore the technology that is available and help them learn about responsibility, by taking good care of the digital camera with my assistance.
