Technology in the Classroom


I'm so excited!  I now have a document camera and projector in my classroom!!!  Isn't she pretty??



We used to have one cart per grade level (except 2nd grade for some reason - we had to share with 3rd grade) and it was a challenge to get time alone with it.  But thanks to the help of DonorsChoose and some hard-working colleagues who did some heavy-duty fundraising, we now have a lot more of these babies in our school!  I just got it this afternoon and can't wait to use it!

On the other hand, is it a FULL MOON?  Oh my goodness it was a whirlwind of craziness at school today.  My kids had a music concert (they did such a great job!) and it ended at 1:45ish.  Most of them got picked up right from the concert.  I had only 8 students for the last hour of school.  It would be so weird to only have that many all the time!

Happy Friday!!

  6. I went from having a document camera to not having one, and I have to say- you will fall in love!! It's so great for showing things up close, especially student work or example work!
