Donors Choose is an online charity that allows others to donate to projects created by teachers. The projects can cover a variety of items including classroom supplies, technology, or other specialties.
Previously this year, we had two projects up on Donors Choose. One had asked for a new video camera to help improve the quality of the videos that we were creating for our math movies. The second was for two iPod Touches that we could use during centers in our classroom. Thanks to the incredible support of parents and others, both of these projects were funded!
We just recently received both packages and were eager to put them to use! We hope you enjoy some pictures of the newest additions to our classroom!
Thank you so much to everyone who made this happen for us! We absolutely love all our new tools and will make the best of them to continue our learning throughout the year!
Have you had a chance to use iPod Touches in school before? How have you used them?
What are some ways that we could use the video camera besides for math movies?
Dear Mr. Avery and Class,
Wow! I am so excited for all of you. It must feel like Christmas all over again in your classroom. You do so many amazing things and I know that you will put this new tools to excellent use. I am looking forward to seeing how you will use your iPods and I always enjoy watching your movies.
Dear Mr. Avery,
Our class is so lucky to have the iPod Touches and the cameras. My favorite game on the iPod touch is Pictorial. I can’t wait in until we film our next Math Movie on the new cameras.

You 6th graders are lucky that you get I Pod Touches! I sure wish the 3rd grade could get I Pod Touches! Quick! 9×9=(81)
We are very lucky, and we couldn’t have gotten them without Donors Choose! We also got an awesome video camera that works great! We can make better videos now, and post them here on the bog. Thanks for commenting!
Dear 6th Grade,
Congratulations on the new technology, that’s great news. Uses for the video camera? How about a mini-movie involving some sort of math (or any subject) mystery that needs to be solved.
I think it is amazing that you were able to raise money for the 2 ipod touches and video camera. You have learned so much from having the experience to learn how to utilize both.
ps- I also think you are truly amazing and I am so proud of you and your accomplishment in the recent geography bee! You Rock Baby Girl! xoxo mom
Wow! Your class is very lucky to receive iPod touches and different electronics. Hope you have fun in class.
Dear Mr. Avery,
I love using the iPods during centers and at indoor recess! I love Temple Run and Pictorial! The new video camera is so cool. I love being able to be lucky enough to get to use these kinds of things in school!
Dear Mr. Avery,
I can NOT wait till the new video is up. I wonder how much better the quality will be!
What videos do you want to make? Someday you could make a website on how to become a “professional” blogger!
