Dry Erasing Our Way to Success

Help me give my students dry erase markers! We love to write on our desks and boards when we explore mathematical thinking. These EXPO markers are perfect because they erase well and don't dry up quickly!

My Students

My school is still a very new school, so resources can be hard to find. We work to use the materials we have in an efficient way. Each day, my students enter the classroom "ready to learn."

My 21 curious 3rd graders love to explore the world of math!

They are always excited when I allow them to write on desks with their EXPO markers. My school is a Title I school, and students come from very different neighborhoods. However, each of them are enthusiastic about growing and becoming great people. In my classroom, we work on life skills along with our academic education. I want to help mold them into people who are kind, considerate, and thoughtful.

My Project

We will use these markers every single day as we learn new concepts in math. My students always use their markers on their desks and boards when they are working hard to solve a problem. They get excited about math when they know they'll get to use a marker.

EXPO markers are a staple in our math class each day!

We use them to learn, solve, and explore. We take notes, write essays, and evaluate expressions with these markers.

I truly believe my students think they are better at solving math problems when they use a marker. They are eager to share their thinking and try things out. By placing an EXPO marker in a child's hand, you're unlocking ideas that they may have been hesitant to explore!
