My Students

My school is located in Georgia. Most of our students receive free lunch. Many of them have no homes, they live in nearby motels. I service students with special needs in a small group setting. Because of their environmental setting and learning deficits, their self-esteem and socialization skills are at very minimal. They come to school expecting teachers to care, love, and provide for their needs.

My special need students need stand alone dry erase white board to present their learning to teacher and classmates with confidence.

When I start the lesson with the text book, my students felt it too much to learn as the materials overwhelm their ability level. As a professional in education field, I have to break down the tasks and help them to understand and apply it in their everyday life. To break down the concepts, I use many tools like chart paper, white board, technology integrated resources, manipulative etc.., This academic year, I am moving to a different classroom where there is no room for me to use the dry erase white board attached to the wall in the classroom. I needed that space to use anchor charts and other teaching resources.

My Project

The use of dry erase boards is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math. When I break down the task, I let my students practice the same way I break down the skills. So dry erase board and my students are well knitted when we do math. The dry erase board allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. As new academic year going to start, my new classroom doesn't have any wall space to hang any dry erase board. When I have this compact dry erase mobile board, it gives an easy mobile access throughout my room and students can work on both the sides of the board without interrupting the other group. By having this magnetic board, I can use manipulative on the board during my instruction. Also, I can let students to use this as a presentation tool with their chart paper. Learning becomes more engaging and less straining for my special needs students!

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student learning, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement by targeting their focus and attention.

This board will be the great asset in my class for my students. They will be able to maneuver the same way I modeled them during instruction.
