My Students

My students are ready to meet their full potential during their 2nd grade year. They're always eager to use technology during the learning process. How cool would it be to look back years from now and have digital pictures from your second grade year?

My students are second graders who are still eager to learn new material to reach their full potential.

My class is a diverse group of 14 boys and 9 girls. Our school is located in Mississippi, in a small community where most students have free or reduced school lunch. We are very involved with our students and their parents, with one goal in mind and that is to enhance all students' academic future.

My Project

My students and I will use the document camera to effectively engage the class with the ability to display examples of the manipulative that is being used or the worksheet being completed. Making this visible to all students at one will make it much easier for them to follow along. Students will be able use this while presenting their projects to the class. The digital camera will be used to capture various activities that the students will be involved in throughout the school year. We will build a 2nd grade book that they will be able to take home at the end of the school year to share with their parents. Having access to these items will increase their knowledge about technology and how to implemented with the learning process.

The donated items will greatly improve my classroom, by giving us the opportunity to give the ultimate gift of sharing memories with our families.

My students will love the opportunity to learn with the document camera and to be able to keep up during the lesson because of the examples being displayed.
