Say Cheese and Smile for the Camera!

Help me give my students a Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 instant camera, instax film, and a Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Smartphone printer so I can take pictures of our virtual learning and mail a special surprise to them.

My Students

My Kindergarten students are an energetic, fun-loving bunch. They are mostly children of immigrants, with parents having very limited education and they cannot help their child with their school work. Over 90% of our school population is on free or reduced lunch.

My students worked very hard this school year and were achieving goals at a rapid pace, and then the pandemic hit, and things changed.

My students are at home now, with very limited resources and are not receiving the support they were getting at school. I do weekly virtual meetings, and it's wonderful to see their faces light up with joy when they see their teacher and their friends.

My Project

This has been a school year we will never forget and I want to make sure we have a way to remember what we have gone through. This pandemic is hopefully the first and last we all will experience.

I want pictures of our virtual online classes so that I can mail them and my students can have a keepsake of their Kindergarten Distance Learning!

It is definitely not the best of memories we have made this year, but it is a year we could never forget.

I meet with my students twice a week, to teach them a lesson and give them time to share any thoughts and feelings. They look forward to our weekly meetings; I believe it is a time for them to forget about what is going on and just spend some time together.

These are the memories I want to capture, and with these pictures, they will be able to share them when they are older and remember that we made it through this pandemic!
