My Students

Do you know what it is like to teach a vibrant group of multi-ethnic, multi-cultural first graders inside a small classroom space? That is what I face every day! I need a centralized whiteboard easel for demonstration purposes!

I teach first grade in a high need, economically challenged and diverse population at a newly formed K-8 school.

They are a highly engaged group of first graders! I teach in a small classroom space that lacks adequate storage and space for a whiteboard demonstration easel. I am eager to streamline my classroom space, yet want a central focus to gather my young eager students for demonstration of techniques and strategies to improve their learning! This easel will provide the space for demonstrations and also stores books and supplies for classroom instruction!

My Project

A reading/writing easel on wheels is just what is needed to solve this dilemma of a small classroom space! This particular reading/writing easel is on wheels and even folds down for ease of movement and accessibility! It has bins to organize materials and plenty of surfaces to write a variety of language and literacy! It would become a central focus in my small classroom and has the storage and writing space so desperately needed!

Your generous contribution would provide a daily link to my first grade students success in literacy!

All of my literacy items would be easily at hand and easily moved out of the way! Yet, I would still be able to address my literacy instruction in a variety of ways on an ongoing basis! Imagine daily messages, riddles, poems and chants readily available to my young, vibrant, multicultural first graders who would benefit from that stability and accessibility to their learning each and every day!
