My Students

Help my students have access to all the information available to support their learning via the Internet.

We are a class of second graders in California.

Our school was just named a Distinguished School. Our kids are hungry to learn and love to get involved with their learning. Our school is all about kids and we go above and beyond wherever we can no matter the cost or time.

My Project

I use the information and resources that are available to us via the Internet to support and improve my students understanding in lessons. They use pictures to learn vocabulary for Reading. They take virtual field trips to places we can't visit. It is very hard to see these on a computer screen from across the room.

We hope to use this projector not only to connect students more with information that is available but to lessen the need for "disposable" supplies.

In this time of tight school budgets, technology is a must but expensive resource. Please help!
