Ms. Wiseman from Trenton NJ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Projecting Our Mathematical Reasoning

My students need Lumens Document Camera to project their mathematical ideas so that they can share their abstract and quantitative reasoning that is required to master the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.

My Students

"Si se puede" is the slogan we have in my transitional bilingual classroom in Trenton, New Jersey. By providing opportunities for students of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds, these curious learners can believe that their goals are possible to achieve.

All my students have immigrated to the United States to access both the economic and educational advantages that exist here.

Their limited English proficiency is not limiting their desire to learn. They are eager to learn the required curriculum as they are developing their skills in the English language.

These students have been in the country for no more than three years and most have been here for less than a year. It is important that they participate in engaging and authentic activities to acquire their new language with confidence. As their teacher, I strive to provide them with an educational environment that fosters this growth!

My Project

All students should be able to explain how they got their answer. Using a document camera, students will be able to take their work no matter how tiny and share it with their audience. This resource will be an authentic guide that transforms students into critical thinkers that can make positive contributions to society.

With continued exposure to math talks, students will become more proficient using mathematical vocabulary and become more confident problem solvers.

It is my hope that all my students exit fifth grade with a greater appreciation for this wonderful content and goals for academic success in middle school.
