My Students

My class consists of third grade students. We are a small school on the outskirts of a big township. My students are very diverse in ethnic backgrounds and are part of a school where about half of the student body comes from limited means. They are very special little people with bright smiles. My students love to learn and love using visual aides to learn. Third graders are expected to perform like upper elementary school children but still need a lot of support from visual models, manipulatives, and charts that display our current topics being learned.

My Project

If my project is fully funded this tool will be used every day in my classroom. It will help me in my daily lessons. The whiteboard will be useful for my students to show their work to the class. I would be able to hang chart paper on this easel which will allow us to create anchor charts to enhance their learning. The lined side will help me to give my students a large area to teach them cursive writing ( YES! I teach cursive writing). Finally, the fact that the board is magnetic will also allow me to create tools for my students to manipulate. Such tools include math manipulatives like fraction bars and circles or base ten blocks for place value, adding and subtracting.
