My Students

Every morning in our classroom we begin our day with a Class Promise and I Am Creed. I then recite our Teacher Promise to our class. "When You Enter This Classroom...You are Scientists, You are Explorers, You are Important, You are Loved, You are Respected, and You are the Reason We are Here!"

We have a lively and fun class of students who love to read and explore more about what they are learning in all subject areas.

They are an active bunch who needs lots of movement. We do a lot of movement breaks in class with music, yoga, and brain gym but several students still need movement while they are doing seat work. Our class is so eager to learn and work with their friends to make our classroom a fun learning community as well as a safe one. Our school works so hard to meet each individual child's needs and accommodate them in whatever manner is needed.

My Project

My students would greatly benefit from the use of a projector as well as the document camera for many reasons. Right now the projector we have does not always work and is having trouble focusing. So, it makes some lessons hard to see when I am trying to display a short video or subject area lesson. Having a projector that works consistently and focuses in with a sharper image as well will make a great impact in our classroom. The document camera can be connected to a projector. This one piece of classroom technology can be used to actively engage students in the learning process. Visual learners will benefit from the use of a classroom document camera by seeing small items, text, demonstrations in a much bigger way. Hands-on learners can also benefit from the use of a document camera by allowing them to be the ones placing objects or items under the document camera and explaining what they are showing. Another benefit of using a document camera is the decrease in copying expense.

My project will make a difference because it will help my visual learners as well as engage all of the children in a whole new way of learning.

I think the kids will be very excited about this new technology addition to our classroom. I am also excited for this project!!
