Together We Can Read, Write, and Share Together!

My students need a document camera to keep them engaged and have access from anywhere in the classroom, no matter where they are seated.

My Students

Kindergarten is such an exciting group! They range in interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds, hold a pencil or learn how to connect and play with each other.

In our kindergarten class, we try to expand their love of learning, build knowledge, develop their ability to get along with others, and explore ways of reaching out to the world.

My students range in different abilities because it is an inclusion classroom. Some of my students have learning disabilities, speech and language impairments or are struggling academically, socially, or emotionally, but are always striving to do their best!

My Project

I have chosen for my students a document camera which will give students more access to books during the lesson. A document camera is not a want but a true need with my instruction. It allows me to engage all students no matter where they are in the classroom.

It is a more exciting and engaging way to learn.

A document camera will help my kindergarten students stay focused on various tasks and improve interactions and discussions in our classroom. We do have a SmartBoard in our classroom and this document camera would be a huge help and change the way they learn.

I also chose sand timers. They are a fun way to help build their reading stamina.
