Smart Students Need A Projector Bulb For Our Smartboard

My students need a replacement bulb for our projector.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember being transfixed while learning something? My students love learning using technology.

I teach a stupendous group of smart second graders in a Title 1 school in Brooklyn.

They love reading, math, writing, art and sock monkeys! We use our interactive white board and our document camera every day to make learning more hands-on and exciting.

My Project

Our projector bulb is dimming and is on its way out! I would love to start the year off with a new bulb so I can replace the old one when it finally dies. This bulb is critical because we use our projector every day. We use it to project educational videos, to look at art work by our artist of the week, to play interactive games, to do shared reading, to look closely at growing plants, to model what to do during a math game, to solve math problems and to look at examples of students' writing. We can't use our interactive whiteboard or our document camera without the projector bulb. My students are totally engaged when we use these technological tools. Everyone can see what is projected on the screen at once and it really livens up our lessons. I wouldn't want to go a day without using our projector!

Your donation will ensure that my students will be able to use our document camera and our interactive whiteboard daily.

Your donation will give my students the opportunity to see educational videos, play math games, participate in shared reading, learn about art... and more! You will ensure that my students will learn using technology. Please invest in my class. I promise you that we will use this bulb every day.
