Mrs. Benoit from Raceland LA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cooperative Learning Anchors Education!

Help me give my students the opportunity to work in groups constructively! With these materials, my students could discuss their assignment and record it on anchor chart paper to be posted around the room.

My Students

Teaching at a low-income school has been one of the most eye-opening experiences in my life. My students don't always come to school with the necessities. But, in my classroom, none of that matters because I love them. I respect them and love them.

My students amaze me every single day!

We set high standards for them and the more we push them to succeed, the more they do! I am constantly trying to find ways to keep my students engaged in learning. The more students talk to each other, hold high level discussions, and are shown what exemplar work looks like, the more they can succeed.

My Project

The materials listed in this project would allow my students to effectively work in groups to create anchor charts to display around the room. I teach 4th grade ELA, which can be complex! I would love to have these desktop anchor charts for my students to be able to work in partners to discuss a skill and create their own anchor charts to help them remember the skill throughout the lesson. The anchor chart paper would be helpful to my students because it would allow them enough space to write, to be creative, and to be hands on. If students are given the opportunity to create, they instantly become motivated. The marker boards in this project would also allow students to teach each other in group work. They become very engaged when given materials where they can teach one another.
