My Students

First graders are so excited to learn. Everything is a new, exciting adventure that they cannot wait to embark on. Each year I have around 20 unique students students who cannot wait to learn all about the world.

I have an energetic group of first graders who love hands-on activities.

They can learn so much in such a short amount of time when given the opportunity. In the past when talking about the phases of the moon my students had so many questions and were so fascinated that they couldn't wait to go home and look outside at night. My students love to learn about technology and computers!

My Project

I need a document camera for my classroom so that my students can see models projected on the board. First grade students need to see how their hands should move when practicing their handwriting. Through the use of the Elmo my students will be able to see handwriting projected on the board.

The use of technology in the classroom will help my students be better prepared to be 21st century learners.

A document camera is a tool that can help students better understand math as well as writing. I will use the Elmo daily to model handwriting and counting tools for my students.
