Mrs. Barwinski from Bronx NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Step-by-Step Success!

Help me give my students the opportunity to have lessons presented in the best possible way during distance learning! Having a document camera will allow me to demonstrate step-by-step directions during instruction.

My Students

I teach in a very large, urban, elementary school. We have about 700 students! I teach in an ICT 4th grade classroom. This means that there is a general education teacher (that's me) and a special education teacher in the room. We are located in the Bronx, in a high-poverty neighborhood. Almost all of our students qualify for free lunch.

My fourth graders need every chance to succeed in these challenging times .

I want to ensure that they have access to all resources necessary to help them achieve their true potential. My co-teacher and I want them to provide our students with a caring yet challenging environment both in the classroom and online. However, most of our students are performing below grade level. We will do our very best to help them make significant progress this year! We want to be able to provide them with the necessary resources to help them learn and stay engaged. is a valuable, cherished resource that helps schools in need.

My Project

My students will be participating in a blended learning situation this year. I will be teaching remotely from my home. Students will have part or all of their instruction delivered via remote instruction for the foreseeable future.

A document camera will allow me to show students how to solve math problems step-by-step, ensuring better understanding of the material.

A document camera can also be used for read alouds as well as grammar, science, and social studies lessons. Instead of holding up a small wipe off board or piece of paper to my computer's camera, students can see my material presented properly with a document camera. The chart paper will be used to create anchor charts that I will take pictures of and upload to our virtual classroom.

This year, due to Covid-10, city agencies are facing major budget cuts. Teachers are receiving no funds to help with out-of-pocket supplies. This project will offset costs already spent transitioning to remote teaching.
