My students need an LCD projector to catapult our learning into the 21st century!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Love the toxic smell of dry-erase markers? How about the pervasive dust of a chalkboard? Ooh, and what about that fabulous nails-on-the-chalkboard screech? Yeah, my students hate it too.
My 2nd grade scholars in Missouri may not have much money, but whatever they lack financially they more than make up for in enthusiasm.
They soak up knowledge like sponges, and they are 100% convinced that they will be ready for FOURTH grade (we're skipping 3rd grade!) by the end of this year because their brains will have grown so big.
Learning about the inner workings of the human body is challenging for any student, but just think how much easier it would be with the aid of a kid-friendly animation. Or try to conceive of understanding a poet's description of crashing waves on the beach when the closest thing to the ocean you've ever seen is a mud puddle after a rainstorm. Unfortunately, our outdated classroom is making it challenging for my scholars to get the 21st century education they deserve. Without the plethora of rich life experiences that their suburban peers have to draw from, my second graders are placed at a huge disadvantage on standardized tests. With the aid of an LCD projector, though, my students can get the next best thing to actually being at the beach: a high-definition video projected onto the wall.
An LCD projector will not only allow my students to visualize places and things they have not had the privilege to experience, it will also allow me to prepare presentations ahead of time so I can spend less time writing on the board and more time giving my students what they really need: one-on-one assistance.
