My students are from the inner city and come from many different backgrounds. For many of my students, coming to kindergarten is the first exposure they get to education. This DonorsChoose project will supply me with more resources to help my students learn and progress in kindergarten.
My students are sweet and put the kind in kindergarten.
They are eager to learn and grow. Everyday they come to school with a smile on their face and a desire to make their teacher and parents happy. I have a great group of students that are full of personality and make me laugh on a regular basis. They have excellent participation and they get along well with each other and play nicely together.
I believe my students deserve everything their little hearts desire and anything that will help them progress academically, emotionally, and socially to get them ready for first grade.
The document camera will be really usefully in my classroom, especially for math and writing. At the beginning of kindergarten, letter and number writing can be projected so they kids can see how to correctly form the letters. As the year moves on and they are becoming more independent writers, the projector will help with the whole class being able to participate in writing prompts and independent writing.
The document camera makes little things big and attainable for my kindergarten learners.
In math, the kids can be at their tables while I display maniipulatives on my desk and everyone can see on the Smartboard. Small books can be blown up so that even the child in the back can see the illustrations vividly.
The document camera has the capability of making teaching come to life for my kids. During whole group instruction, every child will be able to see what the teacher is modeling and they can even demonstrate their knowledge to their peers by projecting it.
