Spring Break and Giveaway Time!!

Happy Spring Break!!
In order to celebrate, how about a giveaway!?!?!

Oh my word!  I was asked to try out the

and let me tell you, it is AWESOME!
(*First, I want you to know that if I do a review on my blog, it will and is always a product that I will and have used.  My opinion will be honest and factual.  I do it mainly because I love giving my readers a chance to win something fantastic!*)

Anyway, I hooked it up and although I have used web cams in the past to take snapshots of work so that I could project a page on the board and work along with the kids, but this was different. The problem I’ve had with web cams is that the picture of the page was grainy and not really good or in focus. 

This camera is SO clear and can also be used as a video camera.
It has lights and is super easy to hook up and use.
  I have already used it to record my kids doing a reader’s theater…which was great because we were able to later watch it as a class.  They were movie stars!
I also used the camera to have one of my students read a story while projecting it on the screen so everyone could follow along.  They loved it!
Learning Resources was kind enough to donate one of these projector cameras to give to one of my awesome followers! A $200 Value!!!
To enter all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and visit Learning Resources here and leave a comment telling me what you would purchase if you could buy one thing for your classroom!

  1. I would love to try out the new now!Board! I had a SmartBoard at my last school and loved, loved, LOVED it. This year I only have a projector and miss all the fun things you can do with an interactive surface!!

    Happy Spring Break to you too! Weeeeee!

  2. I love so much of their stuff! Love the camera you're giving away, and all the magnetic stuff (money, solar system, 10 frames…).

  3. Haha, it was definitely late when I was looking at it, apparently I needed to be asleep!I absolutely LOVE the answer buzzers, because we play a lot of games with our skill of the week, and sometimes we do boys against the girls, and they have to race to hit the bell. This would be perfect, and I would KNOW who was 1st, :-). Thanks for letting me know!

  4. I'm already follower of your blog…LOVE it! I know it's been said before, but I'd go for the SmartBoard too! I teach in a small district where funds are minimal, but I'd so love to have one of those in my classroom! There were tons of "smaller" things that I'd love to have too (the POP games, magnetic clock set, sentence building set, etc), not to mention the awesome video camera that you're giving away!

    Fingers crossed

  5. Since I have very limited technology in my classroom (like, 1computer) I would love anything. Baby steps, I'd start with getting theh Luna Interactive Projection Camera.

  6. I definitely follow your blog! : ) If I could buy anything for my classroom…wow, there are so many things that would be wonderful, but I need books for my kids. I would buy books that they could read during independent reading time. Thank you!

  7. I am new to following blogs and I absolutely love yours! I just subscribed to the learning resources facebook page! If I could buy any product for my classroom it would definitely be the now!board. This projector is also now on my wish list!

  8. Hi Jennifer! I will be the 100th comment! Wow! I follow your fabulous blog! I appreciate you always leaving comments for me!

    If I could buy one thing for my classroom it would be a cart full of wireless notebook computers for the students so they each have their own to use on a daily basis! That would be great!

    Fingers crossed for the giveaway!This is some great technology!

  9. I now follow your blog (I thought I already did) ;).
    I would buy this projector … have been looking at it a lot over the past few weeks – it seems it would interact with my SMARTboard better, and then I could give my elmo to one of our classrooms that doesn't have one.

  10. I would buy one of those cameras. I just wrote a grant asking for a camera for our grade level to share. I don't know if we will get it. I know how much a camera like that can change instruction!
