Ms. C. from New York NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can't See The Picture!

My students need a projection cart.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach second grade in New York. My classroom primarily is populated with ESL learners. Our school serves P-K through 5th grade students. 95 % of the school receives free or reduced lunch.

I was recently given an overhead projector to utilize in the classroom, but I have nothing to put it on. I have used the student's desks, but they are not the right height and I have to balance it on something. Every time I want to use the projector, I need to move student's, desks and carry it to a desk. Then, I have to go back for the materials I need. The students love to view what we are learning and learning visually is a great way for ESL children to understand the material.

We desperately need a projection cart. The cart I have chosen will accommodate the projector, materials, and it can easily be moved from one place to another without disruption.

Please consider my request. ESL children are basically visual learners. They really enjoy learning about the world they live in, and what better way to experience it than by seeing things with your own eyes. Thank you.
