Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am looking for an overhead screen for my classroom. I have a projector but I am looking for a screen. With a screen the image will be clearer than if I was to project it on the shades. I plan on using the overhead during language arts with activities such as guess the covered word. This activity helps to improve the students' ability to decode words. I also use the screen as a management tool with an overhead timer. Students can see how much time they have to complete an assignment or before they need to transition to the next activity. I also use an overhead as a whiteboard with different colors to highlight key points such as in writing lessons. I also use the overhead during math to show how to use manipulative's and students can come up and show their work to the whole class. I would like to be able to mount the overhead screen to the wall so it is high enough in the room for all the students to be able to see.
