My Students

My students are 3-5 years old and come from various backgrounds. They love to learn and play; some don't even want to leave at the end of the day.

Our classroom needs a chart stand.

We are currently using a stand that does not provide support thus making it difficult for our students to write on it. They don't complain but I know they struggle to write as is, I would like to provide them with more support (something to lean on).

My students are so grateful and happy for every little thing they get. They always tell me how much they appreciate the activities and things I get them. They never ask for anything and are happy with whatever they get. I'm so grateful and happy to have them!

My Project

We want a mobile teaching easel to provide our students various ways to participate in classroom discussions and write during circle time. During circle time we practice writing letters and numbers on chart paper but we currently do not have a chart stand with a back that could provide students the support they need to write.

Currently we are using a stand that has no backing making it nearly impossible for our students to write on their own.

We need this chart stand to provide our students with more opportunity to write in class. The more practice they get the better prepared they will be for Kindergarten!
