Lights, Action, Camera!

My students need a camcorder to record our classroom activities such as plays, writer's celebrations, interviews, and trips.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like when you performed an awesome show and not everyone could attend? How wonderful it would be to take home a copy of the performance. My students work very hard and enjoy presenting their work. Having a camcorder would allow them to share those memories with families.

My twenty five second grade students attend a free lunch public school in a low income area of Brooklyn, NY.

They are from many different ethnic backgrounds and many parents do not speak English. They are very helpful and like to do fun and engaging activities.

My Project

The camcorder would allow my students to collaborate on character development through puppet shows and dances. They will also be able to interview people in our community that is part of our social studies curriculum. We will be able to record our field trips and then watch them and go over the things that we learned. Having a camcorder will making our learning easier and fun.

Please support our project!

You will make a difference in my classroom by keeping our memories alive. Parents will forever treasure Thier child's school age performances. My students will be able to look back and enjoy seeing themselves in the spotlight
