Elmo - Not Just a Red Friend!

My students need a document camera.

My Students

Do you remember a teacher lecturing and you sitting and trying to listen? The Elmo will provide a visual with the lesson that will help students be in charge of their own learning.

My students have been through so much change with the disaster this summer.

My hope is to make learning an enjoyable learning time so that they feel successful and in control of their learning. Can you think of a better way to learn than through hands on learning, control of your learning, and being able to see what the teacher is using?

My Project

The Elmo gives our class the ability to see documents the teacher is using. It also allows students to present their projects to their classmates by projecting them on the smartboard. It will not only be exciting for them to show off their work, as well as, prepare them for future careers in presenting skills.

This project is so important to us because it provides a resource we need that will assist us in visual learning and hands on learning.

Using the Elmo gives the students a very fun way to learn.
