Teacher Laura from Norwalk CT is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A White Board Easle Would Be Wonderful For Mini-lessons!

My students need a white board to record their reading comprehension ideas to share with their classmates.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach in a city middle-school made up of a diverse community of learners. I teach struggling readers in grade 6, 7 and 8 in a small group setting.

I teach reading to struggling readers in grades 6, 7, and 8. I implement mini lessons that focus on reading comprehension and reading strategies that good readers use. My students would benefit from having an instructional whiteboard for teacher and student use in this remedial reading class.

The resource that I need is a whiteboard set on an easel. It will allow me to conduct small group mini-lessons on reading comprehension strategies to improve my struggling readers in the area of reading.

You will make it possible for my students to have meaningful, shared lessons in reading strategies. They will be able to record their ideas and share them with their peers in a visual way in addition to verbally doing so. Thank you in advance for any help you can be in obtaining this essential literacy item. It will be so appreciated by me and my students!!
