I teach a self-contained multi-age class of twenty first- (novices) and second- (experts) graders. The students remain with me for two years, with the first-graders moving up to be second graders and a new group of first graders enrolling. Woodlake is a family-oriented school which encourages students' individuality and teaches to a variety of learning styles to help reach all students. Woodlake is located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana which serves a population which was minorly to severely affected by Hurricane Katrina. The project "Lights, Camera, Action" that was previously funded involved the students' receiving a Mini DVD camcorder to use for a variety of purposes in the classroom to further their educational, technological, and social understandings of our world. We are now asking for supplies to help keep this project in full swing, such as blank mini DVD's and recordable DVD's to record and copy their experiences to share with their families. The potential applications of these materials are endless. Students can participate in activities from interviewing their peers, to performing poems and stories, and compiling experiences from throughout the year. One example of a potential use for this equipment is that we are currently working on making inferences while reading, and have been performing dramatic interpretations of poems. In the future, we will be taking this learning to new levels by allowing the students to create poetry and present it to their classmates. We would love to have this recorded for the students to see their communication skills and to have as a keepsake for years to come. This additional equipment will help the students continue to become more technology savvy, while recording their wonderful learning experiences to reflect upon later.
