The students at my school are curious and are just like sponges that just want to soak up what is taught to them. The school is their constant safe place. They come from very diverse backgrounds, but school is one community. The children do not have an enormous amount of supplies to bring to the classroom - but they do have heart.
The community is in a low socioeconomic neighborhood.
Students live in shelters, single-parent homes, and foster homes. We have children from Pre K to 5th grade and a very transient population. Children become homeless or move at the drop of a hat. While they are in my room, I will do what is needed to make it a fun place to learn.
This easel is greatly needed to organize the lessons and charts being taught. Writing can be done using dry erase markers.
Math problems can be displayed and the children can come right up to the easel to view them, copy them, or practice them.
We can write on it, hang charts, or use magnetic manipulatives directly on this easel. Magnetic letters and shapes can make lessons interactive. The storage tray shelf is an added bonus for supplies and books to be kept on. Big books can be placed on the easel to make pages easier to turn and illustrations easier for all children to see.
