Projecting Success

My students need a document camera and a board game for an engaging way to practice social skills.

My Students

Have you ever tried to learn something new from fifteen feet away? Doesn't sound practical does it? But without a document camera, that is what I am asking of my six-year-old students.

The children in my first grade class cannot wait to see what we will do next.

They RUN into the school, and often ask what we will do that day. They are eager to learn, and want to do things the correct way. Our school sits six children at a table, so seeing demonstrations from the teacher often causes us to get tangled up on one another, or things get done incorrectly. Sitting in a tight space also tests our ability to get along and solve problems respectfully.

My Project

I like to provide the children in class with opportunities to create. We do this in interactive journals, art projects, learning centers, and when we use manipulative materials. This project will ensure that each child can see a demonstration and set them up for success. I envision using the document camera to show the work of others also. An activity where children celebrate the accomplishments of others will go a long way toward team building in our class. This would be the only document camera and the only hands-on bullying activity in the school.

This project will relieve all sorts of frustrations.

It will create a way to showcase our talents. It will prevent students from giving up if they make a wrong fold or cut. Children will be able to see what they are expected to do. Seems simple, right?
