My students need individual dry-erase boards and six bins.
Children love competition, and what's more, they love to write with dry-erase markers! I create a flipchart with questions from our topic of study, and they work in groups using whiteboards to generate the correct answer. The group with the most points wins! They love this.
My students are very eager to learn in the form of music or games.
They also like videos and activities. I try to keep things interesting in the classroom so the students stay engaged. Lots of my students come from low-income families. I try to work in as much technology in class as I can because many of them don't have access to it at home.
I will use the individual whiteboards to allow students to generate answers to questions. The students love competition, so I will create a game with them using the boards. I do this now with our test review. I create a flipchart with questions from our topic of study, and they work in groups to answer that question. I then say, "Boards up!" and they show their answer. The group with the most points wins. The students have grown used to this and even ASK to do it before every test! I only have eight whiteboards now, though, so one for each student would be really nice. I plan to use the periodical/book organizer to organize my collection of science books. The students read these books and take Accelerated Reader tests on them.
Donations to this project will allow children to show their knowledge in many ways.
The use of the personal whiteboards will allow for multiple question types and group arrangements. The book organizer will make it easier for me to classify my science books by topic, thereby making it more convenient for students to pick a specific topic.
