Ms. Watson from Fort Worth TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Movies the Digital Way

My students need materials to make digital stories and stop motion videos on a tablet. They will record the videos using a tablet, and their stories can be made with different medium.

My Students

My students are the kids who need to be challenged. I will have classes that include gifted and talented students, as well as students who score in the top 10% on standardized tests. These students want to be in school, they want to learn, they want to change the world.

The majority of my students are coded as economically disadvantaged.

They come from schools and homes where they just don't get a lot of exposure to different cultures outside of their close circle. I want to be able to provide my students with a way to express their creativity through learning new things that they wouldn't have otherwise considered.

My Project

I love doing projects with my students that allow them to build and be creative. The problem is, I have over 300 students and it gets SO expensive to get the materials we need.

Pablo Picasso said, "Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up".

I want to help my students explore their creativity while enjoying the learning process.

For one project, my students are going to create a new animal and describe how it has adapted in its environment. They are going to make a physical representation of their animal and create a "video poster" about it using a tablet. I've got many more ideas of things I can help my students create, and the materials I'm trying to obtain will help us along the way.
