Literacy Live

My students need a Flip camera with a battery pack.

My Students

Help us move into the 21st century! We are in need of a digital camera/camcorder to help document and enrich our learning experiences.

My students are just 5 and 6 years old and have faced more challenges in their short time here on this earth than most people experience in a lifetime.

They continue to press forward and work hard to learn the necessary skills needed to become successful students and many of them do it on their own with no at-home support. They are resilient individuals and don't let their lot in life dictate their future and who they are striving to become as time passes.

My Project

Help us purchase a Flip camera for our classroom so that we can document our learning. Even though my students are only 5-6 years old they are amazing individuals and strive each day to become better readers. In efforts to open their eyes to the joy of reading we act out a lot of stories and put on several plays throughout the year. A Flip camera would allow us to document this creative, exciting and engaging learning experience for these children. A Flip camera would also allow me, the teacher, to read and record stories on podcasts so that students could read along on the computer and have more opportunities to learn how to read with expression and comprehend what they are reading, two crucial skills for laying the foundation of literacy. The students stay engaged for a longer period of time when the use of technology is implemented into our classroom. The more engaged students are the more learning that occurs. Help us continue to support these motivated creative individuals.

Please help us move into the 21st century and integrate more technology into our classroom.

Your donation will impact countless students and provide them not only with an opportunity to improve their reading skills, but you will be giving them a joy and a passion for learning!
