My Students

Our school is a Title I school in which all students get free breakfast and lunch. My students are from low-income households. My students are excited about learning and using a variety of resources to improve their skills. I have special education students, talented and gifted students, and general education students. My students love learning and being engaged! Whiteboards and dry erase markers are necessary items to assist them with at-home learning during our virtual lessons. When we had to abruptly go virtual in Spring/2020, whiteboards & markers were the items my students continually stated they needed! Your generosity will help my students to have the materials they need at home.

My students would love to have their own whiteboards at home to help them convey their responses during virtual lessons.

There are few words that can capture the excitement and energy that is in the classroom when we are using whiteboards, I want to see that same kind of energy during our virtual lessons. I have students of various academic level who face many challenges outside of school. I really want to make sure their virtual learning environment affords them the best opportunity for success.

My Project

These materials will allow my students to work problems out on the boards and quickly display their solutions during our virtual classes. The whiteboards provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. It is difficult for them to show their work on paper in a virtual classroom.

The use of dry erase boards will allow our virtual time together to be more efficient.

We will use whiteboards daily in all subjects! My students will be able to work math problems, write sentences, draw/depict their emotions during our SEL moments (Social Emotional Learning). During guided practice, students use the dry erase boards to work problems and then show their work. I am requesting bags to help keep everything organized while the supplies are at home. Then, when classes resume on campus the materials can return to school in their bag for classroom use.
