Hooray! This project is fully funded

At my school, PS 182, in the Bronx in NYC, there are not a lot of resources for teaching. In the fall, I will be teaching fifth grade. This is the first year the school is offering fifth grade and I will need new things to teach the students and motivate them. The school does not provide all teachers with all resources. Many of the lessons require an overhead projector and only some of the teachers have one. They are not always available to borrow when needed. The students would benefit greatly because, in my experience, I've found that the students are motivated to learn and pay attention when I use an overhead projector. There are many ways to use an overhead projector to motivate the students. I can use it to teach a lesson and the students pay attention more when there is something to look at in front of them. I can use it for hands-on learning by having the students come up to write answers on it. They could also present projects on the overhead. There are unlimited ways to use it and my students would really benefit from it. If I had a screen in the classroom to use with the overhead the students will see the information better. The information doesn't show up as well on the wall or the board so having a screen would be beneficial. I would really like to have my own overhead projector and screen in my classroom so the students will be more motivated to learn. We will use it in many ways and they will enjoy being able to have a hands-on experience to use it.
