Ms. Williams from Sacramento CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seeing is believing! Using a document camera to learn.

My students need this document camera to help them see what we are learning in class. The document camera allows all students to clearly see the example and to also follow along when I am reading.

My Students

My classroom is a beautiful rainbow of students. They come from all walks of life and many of them are entering a classroom for the very first time.

Our school is very diverse and we like to celebrate our differences!

My students are in school for the first time and we work hard to start their school career on the right foot! These kids work very hard and love to learn! Each day is new and exciting for all students!

My Project

When showing examples, I currently use the white board and put a piece of paper on the board to demonstrate. With a document camera, I will be able to do an example so that all students can clearly see.

Students learn by doing.

When they are given the chance to come in front of their peers and work with the teacher, they are more invested. Students will be able to come to the document camera and help me.

A document camera will help students in all academic areas. They will be able to point, move and manipulate materials and do so in such a way that all students can see what is happening.
