Make Math More FUN!

My students need a document camera and white boards so they can follow along with me and solve problems independently.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom involves a lot of working together and sharing materials. Since we are a new school, we are in need of a lot of resources!

Exploris is a brand new school that focuses on project-based education.

While this model is successful, it requires a lot of resources that we do not currently have access to. My students are eager learners in 4th and 5th grade that feel very lucky to have been chosen to go to Exploris. They have been so patient and understanding as we have tried to accumulate resources to make learning more fun!

My Project

Currently, I copy problems on the board over and over, which takes so much time, so that we can work them out together. A document camera would allow me to show them how to work out problems without having to copy them over and over. The whiteboards would then allow students to work with me and not have to use so much paper!

These materials will make things SO MUCH easier for both me and my students.

I will be able to focus more time on helping students than writing problems on the board. I can show them how to work things out quicker and have them show me their thinking, too. Without technology, it is difficult to do all the things I want to do, but with a document camera, I can at least model things for them to see!
