Smile For the Camera

My students need a digital camera, to document their projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I challenge my students to reflect on their work and come up with solutions on how they can improve their learning. I set the bar in my classroom very high and my students always step up to the challenge.

My students are in a dual language program that come from all nationalities.

They are all required to learn two languages. We are a program that is emersed in Spanish fifty percent of the time and English the rest of the time. They are required to take state standardized test in a second language.

My Project

A picture is worth a thousand words and a camera for my classroom would facilitate documentation of growth. Students can view photographs of completed projects and critique presentation boards and pop up books they have created. They can also use these photographs to share with their parents.

As I mentioned before, a picture is worth a thousand words.

To be able to capture their emotions, work, and hope in the future is priceless. We are not a wealthy school and any help with the purchase of a camera would be greatly appreciated.
