Clipboards for 1st Grade

Help me give my students clipboards so they can work independently around the classroom and not always have to be sitting down at their desks.

My Students

I am the teacher of 24 amazing first graders. I love coming to work every day and spending countless hours with them because they put a smile on my face. I try my best to give them everything they need everyday academically but sometimes my resources come up short. Please help me to help my students because they are still young enough to enjoy learning and I would love to keep their interest in learning alive.

My students need love, support, guidance, and a leader.

Our year together can be brighter with your help. Please help us get the tools we need to enhance our learning and strengthen our knowledge.

My Project

Everyday my students spend a lot of time working hard and learning new skills. Many times we work at our desks or at different tables around the room. My students some times work best when they can have a little bit more flexibility in their seating options.

We need clipboards so my students can move around the room while we work.

If they are able to complete their work in centers, on the carpet or even outside in the nice weather, they will be engaged for longer periods of time.

I can’t wait introduce more flexible seating options to my students in our classroom. Having clipboards will allow students to work all around the room and possibly outside of the classroom too.
