My students need a document camera. We are learning how to perfect our writing and communication skills. A document camera allows them to see the correct formation of letters, words, sentences and paragraph structure.
My students are amazing people! They are 20 of the most excited learners I know. Many of them come from low-income households, where school is their one opportunity to shine. Because we live in a high poverty area, our school does not have ample funds to keep up with what helps us learn best. Teachers are spending their own money which they can't always afford because they want these children to be successful. Our classroom is a positive place of respect, kindness and learning where we know anything is possible.
In order to learn, students must first be shown how. Our classroom does not have an adequate way to model letter formation, and writing skills. A document camera will allow students to see the correct way to write, by projecting visual images for the entire class.
It will also allow them to share their own well-written writing projects with their classmates; which for them is a source of pride.
Our classroom at one time HAD a document camera, however, it stopped working and was not able to be repaired. Our school does not have the funds to replace it. I know that a document camera is an important learning tool in our classroom.
