My Students

I am a third grade teacher working for a high poverty school district located in rural mid-Missouri. Our small elementary school provides education to around 300 students.

My classroom usually consists of around 18 bright and shining jewels!

These children each bring with them their own unique personalities and characteristics, helping to make our wacky classroom family complete. My students enjoy moving around, working with partners, interacting with technology, and learning through hands-on experiences. Hard work, enthusiasm, high fives, and smiles fill our classroom daily. These children truly deserve the best education possible!

My Project

Many students are visual learners! They need to see how to solve a problem or use a new strategy first before they are able to complete the task independently. These students heavily benefit from modeling. The document camera which I am requesting will aid me in providing modeled instruction for my students. A document camera captures images in real time and projects them on the board for all students to view. Whether I am modeling how to solve a new math problem, locate information in a text, choose more precise adjectives when writing, or add details to a science project, all students will be able to see and follow along when I use this document camera.

Though I mainly plan on using the document camera for modeled instruction, a document camera has other uses too!

I will be able to display student work under the document camera for all to admire. When I am reading to the students, I can place the book under the document camera so they can follow along. Students can use the camera to project parts of their project during a presentation. I can also use it to take pictures of student work as a way to document their learning. The possibilities are endless!

Thank you for taking the time to read our project! I am excited to provide effective instruction for my visual learners through the use of this document camera!
