Mrs. Benson from Augusta GA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Projecting a Bright Future

Help me give my students this awesome document camera. This camera records and takes pictures of what is being cast to the computer. I love having that ability for parents and students who need extra visuals available anytime.

My Students

My students are affected by the coronavirus pandemic tremendously. School will start one month later than usual, and then, parents will have the choice to send their students virtually or face-to-face. I will be teaching my students that decide to come for face-to-face learning in school, however, anything can happen if someone gets sick. I will have to go back to school to acquire things to teach at home. I do have my theme decor for my virtual and real classroom.

My Project

I will be teaching 1st grade EIP students. These students will need extra support in order to give them a great foundation for reading. Doing this online, and/or under the restrictions of face-to-face learning will prove to be very challenging.

I plan to use this document camera to ensure that anytime that I feel that I need a student to physically see how I am doing an assignment, I will have a tool that will allow that to happen.

This is so important, especially in this age group. I am especially intrigued by how the document camera records. It makes sharing lessons with parents easy!
