My Students

The students in our classroom engage in new learning opportunities with enthusiasm and gusto. Opportunities that allow them to see the world beyond the city are few and far between.

More than 80% of our student population has difficulty securing basic living needs including food and housing.

For many students, school is the highlight of their day, knowing that is where breakfast and lunch are provided. The majority are English Language Learners, whose parents are first generation immigrants.

Our classroom is an exciting learning environment where we come together from diverse backgrounds to collaborate with each other as we engage in hands-on active inquiry and digital learning experiences.

Our classroom has become an integral part of their success in helping them feel secure, included and encouraged. The sense of community that we have built allows each child the opportunity to explore their beliefs and ideas in a safe environment.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our classroom project!

My Project

We have been focusing on becoming strong public speakers in our classroom. Part of this has involved speaking in small groups, presenting to the class, using Flipgrid to record ourselves, and SCRATCH to animate our digital creations. Polaroid action cameras would be the perfect addition to enhancing our learning experiences.

These Polaroid action cameras, will allow students the opportunity to record their speaking and presentations.

Then, when they have the opportunity to review their presentations, they will be able to reflect on their performance, make changes, and try again.

Teaching children to look at faces while speaking, clearly pronouncing words, and speaking with expression and engagement are skills that need to be practiced. This type of technology addition in the classroom would be beneficial.
