The World Through a Child's Eye

My students need 6 digital cameras to begin a writing project in the classroom this year.

I am a fourth grade teacher in the South Bronx of New York. I am teaching writing this year by using pictures. The saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words.I want to get my children excited about writing and they can do that through pictures. The children in my class all receive free lunch and most come from one parent households. Many have no experience with a camera and are so engaged with a camera in their hand. They all anxiously wait for their turn to use my camera I bring from home from time to time. Even the most reluctant writer will write a few lines about a photo he has taken. I would love to let them use a camera this year for several writing assignments. They can add their own photos to power point presentations. Those six digital cameras would really help me bring excitement to my Bronx classroom. Seeing the world through a child's eye can really help us notice the small beauty they can see everyday. Thank you for helping our class become better writers this year.
