Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a fourth grade teacher at one of the largest elementary schools in New York City. Nearly 100% of the students get a free lunch, and the school has a large range of ethnicities and cultures represented. My class of 30 enthusiastic students are always looking for new ways to expand their learning experience. Research has shown, and the kids' eyes show, that students learn better when material is presented colorfully and brightly. A large, movable white board is exactly what my classroom could use to make this hope a reality. The students love to write with the markers on the one small board we have, and are always wishing we could do more. The white boards give them a greater sense of pride as their work stands out much clearer for all to see. My students really enjoy working with white boards when we work in small groups. Because chalk can sometimes be hard to see, there are some students who have to work even harder during the day to learn the material. The white board would solve many problems and create a brighter, more exciting class environment. Whether I'm teaching math, social studies, writing, reading, or any subject, it is always important to keep my students engaged. Having a colorful display can go a long way toward this goal, and it adds to a brighter, more cheerful classroom environment. Gone are the days of dusty chalk and hard-to-read boards. The new dry erase system really works well and would be a wonderful addition to the classroom.
