First Grade Cave Students in Need of Technology! Part 2
My students need 2 32GB memory cards to save and store the pictures they take and 2 camera cases to protect the cameras.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you know what it's like to live in the Stone Age? This is the second part to my first project. We didn't have the technology needed to take pictures or videos and finally we got it, except that the cameras didn't come with memory sticks or protective cases.
The majority of my students are English Learners in Southern California who come from hard-working immigrant families.
They come from low socio-economic backgrounds. My students are inquisitive and eager to learn. My school is small with limited resources. The parents sometimes work two jobs and technology is a luxury that is not affordable for them.
My students have the cameras to take pictures and make videos, however, the cameras don't have external memory sticks. The memory sticks will enable the students and me to save multiple pictures and videos throughout the year so that we can document their first grade journey.
My project is important because by taking pictures and videos my students and I can document our first grade journey.
We can store multiple pictures and videos and share them with parents, colleagues, and friends without worrying about deleting old pictures and videos until we are ready to. I believe that pictures and videos are very personal and they capture the moment. They provide a visual documentation and memories for students and parents of the learning going on in our room.
