Eager Learners Need Need Permanent Anchor Charts

My students need an easel with chart paper to help them visualize higher-level thinking concepts in our new Common Core curriculum.

My Students

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn," Benjamin Franklin said. A easel and chart paper will allow my students to see, hear, read, and write higher-level thinking concepts of the new Common Core standards.

My class of second-graders are a wonderfully diverse group of eager learners from a low socioeconomic area in California.

The children come to school full of energy and are so excited to fully participate in their education. They are an amazing bunch of kids!

My Project

An easel with chart paper will allow the students to visualize what I am teaching. I will use the chart paper to teach and graph math problems, new Language Arts skills, and Science concepts. I'll be able to keep the chart paper and use it as a reference poster in the classroom. I can further engage students by allowing them to use the easel and chart paper to discuss what they are learning in small groups, and then have them share their new knowledge with the rest of the class.

Having an easel with chart paper will make a big difference in my classroom.

I have very limited white-board space and everyday I must erase all the information we have learned to start the next day's lessons. When I erase the board, I feel like I'm erasing a day's worth of learning. Having an easel and chart paper will allow me to review what we have learned to keep the knowledge fresh in my student's minds.
