My Students

I love my third graders! Our Title I school in New York City is comprised of a diverse group of students who mostly receive free lunch.

Our students are very energetic and have very different learning styles, abilities, and needs.

Many of our students have learning disabilities and some are just learning English.

It is very important for us to encourage both group work and independent work so our students can succeed. In order to do this, we have to appeal to our students' interests by staying up-to-date with technology. Many of our students do not have computers, tablets, or Internet at home. In order to succeed today, we want to expose them to this technology as much as possible in school!

My Project

When I was leaving my classroom last month, I did not think I could possibly be gone for that long. I took books, workbooks and paper home with me thinking that would be enough to get me through the next few weeks. Throughout the year at school, we are able to work with what we have because we are surrounded by everything school-related because we were working in a school building. I never could have imagined a shift in my entire life, including my career and the way I teach and interact with my students. Now, I'm struggling with trying to build a mini-classroom in my home with limited materials, space, and funds.

Remote Learning has proven to be a challenge without the proper materials.

By having a portable document camera that is compatible with my home computer, I will be able to get back to modeling my explicit instruction for my students. I will be able to SHOW them exactly what to do, like I used to be able to do in my classroom. Although this is in no way comparable to teaching students in school, it's as close as I can get for now. Since we began remote learning, my students have been able to hear instructions of how to complete their work. This document camera and dry erase board will give them the ability to SEE modeled instruction as well.
