Seeing Things is a New Way

My students need a document camera to further explore a variety of text.

My Students

Building a school from ground up is a challenging thing. Having enough books for an entire class is costly and not realistic for my class at this time.

The parents of my students have taken a chance by moving their child to a charter school.

They come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and I would like to provide them with as many educational opportunities as possible. They are very eager and excited about learning and I would love to peek their interest even more by opening their eyes to many different books.

My Project

We currently don't have textbooks for science and social studies so as a teacher, I must be creative in finding resources in these areas. A document camera would allow me to find and use multiple text and visual resources that could then easily be displayed for all to see.

Any donations made, big or small, would greatly benefit my students.

I work daily to create and build meaningful experiences for my students. This project would greatly benefit those students that learn visually.
