Say Cheese!

My students need a digital camera, memory card and a classroom boombox for class activities and events.

My Students

A picture is worth a thousand words! Enhancing our second grade year by capturing my students' smiling faces and accomplishments with digital photographs and using a BoomBox to create an exciting learning environment would be a dream come true!

My students are bright, energetic, intelligent seven year-olds who love to be in the spotlight!

Whether it's outside the classroom on a field trip or inside the classroom making discoveries, they always put their best foot forward. A new digital camera and Boombox will enhance their learning experiences and provide an opportunity for my students to grow academically and socially.

My Project

Using our new digital camera, we will display work samples of student work, projects, and events. Additionally, we will use the recording function to record Reader's Theater, class skits, and class parties. Students will have the opportunity to take home their photographs in a class memory book at the end of the year. A class boombox will give my students an opportunity to listen to books on CD at our class listening center. Additionally, the Boombox will be used to play Seasonal music, poetry, and to rehearse for upcoming music concerts.

Please help my students have a memorable second grade year by providing them with a new digital camera and BoomBox for classroom activities and events.

Thank you for your support!
