Clipboards: Gaining Experiences Through Mobile and Interactive

My students need clipboards, dry erase sheets, and dry erase markers to use during interactive partner activities and outside learning experiences, like the garden.

My Students

Las Vegas is a melting pot of cultures and our school is no exception. We are a Title I school in an inner city, which means we have a low, socio-economic population. My students do not have the luxury of traveling and building background knowledge through experience. Our school has students from Ethiopia, Latin America, Asia and families born and raised in Las Vegas. We are learning and growing from each other. My students support and understand one another, while agreeing and respectfully disagree with each other. Many are new to this country, experiencing a classroom for the first time. The two biggest challenges my students face are lack of technology and experience.

My Project

When you walk into our classroom, we are often around the room working together. Our classroom is extremely interactive but sometimes are limited to where we do our work. When a hard surface is needed students grab anything that will work. However, it may not be efficient because it does not hold the papers in place and waste valuable time finding something that will work.

With clipboards my students will not only increase learning time but also facilitate outside experiences, like garden and math Olympics because students will be able to travel to stations while recording their findings.

I also discovered that on the back of the clipboards I can place an adhesive dry erase sheet so that students have a 2-in 1 utensil. this will free up some space in their desk and allow them to transition to floor work much faster. My students will appreciate the supplies and utilize them to achieve educational goals. They will help my students have access to to the necessary material they need to comprehend classroom instruction.
