Sharing and Seeing Is Key!

Help me give my students the ability to see clearly group projects, books being read aloud to them, or see things up close by using an Elmo document camera.

My Students

I teach a class of kindergarten to second grade students with moderate to severe disabilities in a special day class. These disabilities range from orthopedic impairment to intellectual disabilities and autism. Many of my students struggle with focusing on group lessons.

They are all lively, cute, and typically always ready and willing to learn.

My students constantly need extra sensory input. They have a difficult time modulating their own systems, and often need some sensory activities to help calm them down when they are having a rough day.

My Project

My students struggle with staying focused on shared materials, such as books. When the book or other material can be magnified it helps all my students focus on what is being shown them, thus helping them learn. Using a document camera is a very effective way of magnifying items so the whole class can see it at once on the projector. We have a built in projector and sound system in our classroom, we are only missing the document camera.

When all students can see what is being read to them, or projects assembled at once, learning is happening much more effectively.

Our district supports Elmo document cameras with the built in projector system. Unfortunately, do to budget cuts, there is not enough money to buy us an Elmo document camera.
