Our class is made up of "Wild and Wonderful" first graders. We are always on the move and ready to learn new things. This year we are starting a new balanced literacy approach to learning. The class is in need of an easel to help with shared writing. Each morning, I will be able to welcome the class with a special message displayed on the easel. Together, we will write stories. This will help to guide each child to learn to tell their own, unique story.
The easel, chart paper, and markers will make shared writing easier. All of our materials will be organized in one spot. Students will be able to share the pen and reach the chart paper with ease. The magnetic easel will also be useful for station time. The possibilities are endless! Not only can we write stories but use magnetic letters to make words. Our class also learns songs each week. This helps us practice our reading in a fun way. We try to share our songs with other students in the school once a week. The easel will make learning the songs easier.
