My Students

My second grade students are 45 boys and girls who come to school each day eager-to-learn. The kids are sweet and kind souls who are trying their best to succeed academically--yet, it is often a struggle. My classroom population is roughly 50% English language learners and 50% African-American students. Our school population is primarily African-American and Hispanic, and at our school 100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Despite being economically challenged, these kids are true go-getters and lovers of learning.

They embrace everything I am teaching them. They love school and thirst for knowledge. School is a safe haven to many of my students.

My Project

During the course of the school day there are many things that I want to share visually with my students. When I am modeling a math strategy, it is often difficult for everyone to see what I am doing.

My remedy to this problem is to get a document camera so that everyone will be able to see.

The document camera will be used for hands-on modeling with manipulatives, showing pictures from books, showing student work for all to see, and more.

The main way this document camera will influence and assist my students is by allowing them to see more things being presented with ease. This in turn will allow for students to have a better chance to grasp the content being taught.

I have also requested a pack of stylus pens for my students to use when working on our iPads.

Thank you for considering to donate to my project.
