Kindergarten students need a lot of practice when learning to spell words, identify rhyming words and letter sounds, counting objects, addition and subtraction, and identifying patterns, just to name a few skills. They are eager learners, however they do not always have the materials they need.
I teach kindergarten at a high poverty school in Aiken, SC.
I have 22 students in my class. Most of them do not have access to technology at home. I strive to provide them with as many opportunities as possible. My students are very active and eager learners. They especially look forward to small group time, math and literacy centers.
It is vital that students learn from an early age the correct way to write no matter the topic or purpose. It is very important that my kindergarten students learn the correct way to form and write letters and they need to see everything modeled for them before completing it independently.
Having a document camera in our classroom would allow me to efficiently model proper writing techniques and math applications.
A document camera would also allow my students to share and display their own work to their classmates.
The document camera would promote collaboration among my students while allowing me to model and display work for my visual learners. My students would be able to show their working and thinking with others, helping to build their critical thinking skills.
