Dry Erase Markers Save Trees!
My students need dry erase markers to use with their whiteboards.
Help us save paper, pencils and trees. Our class is lucky enough to have personal white boards that we can do many of our class assignments on. Using the white boards, allows us to save paper, trees and pencils. We enjoy working on our whiteboards and our teacher can check our answers quickly.
My students are the most enthusiastic, excited and engaged learners that you will find.
They enjoy learning new math concepts, vocabulary word along with social studies and science. My students live in a high poverty area of Southern California. Many of students parents are working two and some are working three jobs just to ensure that they have a roof over their heads. The parents of my families want their students to get good grades, graduate high school and attend college. They are working hard today so that their children will have a successful future.
My students have become good stewards of the earth. We have a classroom recycling program where we collect plastic water bottles, cardboard boxes and paper. These are turned into the city recycling program each week. This class project has made the kids aware of the importance of conservation. The use of white boards in the class has cut down on our use of paper by 40%. These white boards are a wonderful tool, but require that the students have special dry erase markers. Many of my students just don't have the additional funds in their families budget to purchase them. I try to buy dry erase pens when I can find them on sale at discount stores.
Your help, funding and assistance with this project will encourage the students to be good stewards of the earth, help us save paper, trees and pencils.
Most importantly, it will keep the students, engaged, excited and active in their learning. The class asks so often, "Can we use the whiteboards?" With a heavy heart, I have had to say no due to the fact there are not enough pens for the class to use.
