We use to use whiteboards daily in the classroom to demonstrate our understanding, answer questions and represent strategies for math. Today we can not use them as much due to a lack of supplies. More students have joined our class and many markers stopped working or dried out. The students were always very engaged when everyone had the opportunity to participate. Now if we use them, some students do not have the markers or boards necessary to do so. This has made it hard to use them at all while keeping the classroom safe and fair. When they can be used it is an engaging experience and the kids stay focused and love to share their learning using whiteboards. Another way these materials will help my students is encourage good discussions. Everyone will want a chance to use the Qball and I know even my shiest student will be hoping for a turn and ready to share their thoughts not having to worry about being heard. Mask wearing is crucial, but can make it difficult for students to hear one another, especially soft spoken students. This mic with allow students to stay engaged and ready to contribute to great academic conversations with one another to support learning in all subjects. The flex seating desk will allow students the freedom to stay safe and social distanced while giving them the ability to work where they are most comfortable. Some students have less stress when they are allowed to work where they choose and others finish assignments more quickly. Sometimes students sit on the floor to see better and make sure they have their notes correct. These lap desks would help those students by giving them a surface to write on while being able to see notes that may be smaller than normal.
