Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 15 fourth graders in a South Bronx public school. This year, my students will be studying the literary genre of autobiographies. After reading various autobiographies, the children will write their own autobiographies. I will be asking my students to bring in photographs of themselves when they were younger to add to their autobiographies. To make their autobiographies more current, I would like them to include recent photographs of memorable people and places in their lives. We currently have 6 Polaroid One-Step cameras available. I would like the children to be able to take the cameras home and photograph the people and places that mean so much to them. The photographs will be included in their autobiographies which will then be bound. My students will be extremely excited to participate in this assignment. The only thing missing is the film! The children will be sharing the cameras, so each child will take 5 photographs. I am requesting 10 packs of Polaroid instant film. This will enable each child to take photographs of the people and places closest to their hearts and will provide them with enough film to practice taking photographs. Your generous gift will enable my students to make their autobiographies one of their most special and meaningful writing assignments.
