My Students

My Pre-K class (with 3 other classrooms) was supposed to be the first full day Pre-K. We were going to be able to learn and explore so much this year. Now, though we won’t be full day, or even at school at all for now, we still want to explore the world. Hopefully, we get to go back into the classroom, but until then, we will be digital learners!

My Project

With a document camera, I will be able to do read alouds and writing demonstrations in real time. The children will be engaged in real time learning while I am about to write with them. The children will be able to see how to hold a writing utensil Properly and wrote at the same time with me. We currently have a document camera that is over 13 years old, the software is no longer compatible with our newer computers. Being able to replace the camera would bring equitable educational experiences to these underserved families.
