Learning Best Through Sight

My students need a document camera so that my students can be able to see examples of exemplary work of their peers.

My Students

My students are 43 eager, energetic, and loving 1st graders who are enrolled in one of Delaware's dual language schools. Students alternate between taking classes one day in English and another day in Spanish throughout the week. 99% of the students at my school come from low income homes where all students receive free school lunch. Regardless of our population's struggles, our school maintains a desire and mission to create bi-literate and bilingual learners of our future.

The majority of students are ELL who are still ecstatic to learn and become the bi-literate and bilingual scholars.Whenever presented a challenge, my students are tackling it full force giving it their all.

Students encourage each other to never give up and do their best even when they feel discouraged. Our school seeks to show the potential of our student population with what they bring to our classrooms. Our jobs as teachers to be live and breath the UNIDOS (united) mission.

My Project

Having a document camera will allow me to show students writing samples from their peers. Students will be able to come to the document camera and be able to show their peers how they answered a problem or explain their thinking. We have some materials in the classroom that only have 1 hard copy and instead of making copies, we can all view it together on the document camera. Students will be able to see and learn in a manner that they have never been exposed to.

Students learn best through examples and visual representations that pave way for new learning experiences.

With a document camera we can place a book and read aloud with a nice big projection. We can work with our manipulatives in math in real time without having to hold them up in the air! We can project newspapers to read and learn about current events in the newspaper. The benefits are endless when our students are able to see things bigger, better, and clearer.
