My Students

My third graders come to school every day because they know it is a safe place where someone will protect and care about them. Ninety percent of the students attending my school qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunch. They come from broken families or parents who work multiple jobs just to pay rent. It is hard for them to continue their learning at home because parents are working hard to make ends meet, or they simply don't have any materials to work with. Due to this fact, many of them are below grade level and struggling to get caught up.

My Project

My students and I desperately need a small, versatile document camera and doorbell! The doc cam we're hoping for is small, so it won't take up much space in our classroom. It also has a light which makes displaying things extremely easy! It can be used to scan pages of a book, display work that we're doing in class, as well as help display examples of things the students are working on. The doorbell is also small, and something that I can hook on my lanyard.

The document camera and doorbell will drastically change our daily learning!

Currently, it's extremely hard for my students to follow along with the steps of a math problem, or when we're highlighting evidence in a text. With this doc cam, I will be able to display things, and work on them at the same time so students can see what I'm doing. They will be able to follow along with whatever I'm doing. Whether it's a multiplication problem with multiple steps, or learning about landforms in our social studies unit, the students will be able to see every single move I make with this document camera!

Since we're midway through the year, and coming back from winter break, my student's need some new attention getters to pay attention to what's on the document camera! Therefore I'd like this wireless doorbell! Instead of just hearing my voice or clapping, I can use the doorbell to pull the attention of the class back to the document camera! Both of these tools I'm requesting will greatly improve our classroom!
