My Students

My students are very enthusiastic about science and technology. They are a bright group of learners.

My students are engaged and ready to learn.

My school is a Title I school. I have a range of students from those who need extra help to students that are advanced.

My fourth graders love to work together and collaborate with other students. They are very excited about learning about engineering, science, and technology. They are always asking when are we going to do our next science experiment.

My Project

We use dry-erase boards in our classroom daily. My students can use them to practice what they have learned and I can do a quick check to see who understands. In math, I can show the students the how to and then they can use their dry erase boards for guided practice. Students will all hold their answers and I can quickly see if they are understanding.

Dry-erase boards are very versatile and come in handy for a variety of uses in the classroom.

They work well for small group instruction. Students also use them for collaborating with each other as well. I have a few big boards I had cut at Home Depot from Marker Board. Student create posters in group work to present to the rest of the class. With our daily use of the boards, we need more markers.
