My students need a multimedia projector to project resources such as maps, science experiments, quality literature, slide shows, etc.
Have you ever gone to the movies and sat behind someone who blocked your view? My students feel that way each time we have a resource such as a book, a map, or do a science experiment together. I am seeking funding for a projector so my students can get to "see the big picture".
My students live in a high poverty area and attend an inner city school.
All are on free breakfast and lunch. My kindergarten students are very eager to learn but staying focused has become our greatest challenge. New concepts are exciting and wonderful but when we have to share a resource more than half of them want to be in the front so they will have the best seat for viewing. With a projector, we can ensure that all our students get the best seat and get the "big" picture.
The major objective of this proposal would be an improvement in reading and science. Because of a limited supply of quality literature books for our students, I will be able to project stories we use throughout the year on a large screen available for all to see. Even the smallest of books will be able to be viewed by all. This will expose students to high frequency words during our story times and eventually lead to improvements in reading, spelling, writing, and language acquisition. In addition, a higher interest in science would also be evident. Science experiments would be able to be projected step-by-step, as well as live specimens so that all students would be able to see what is going on and follow along at their tables.
This projector will affect the lives of children in more than one classroom.
It would be used in conjunction with a document camera which is currently shared among the classrooms. With limited technology, we make the most of what is available to us. We, the teachers, want to ensure that our students are exposed to these tools and their uses. Please help make it possible for our students to be exposed to this modern technology as a learning tool.
