My students are amazing! They love learning and they love coming to school. The students are inquisitive, competitive and hilarious. They are convinced we have the best class in the school because we always win our spirit day count (the most students to wear the school t-shirts). We are half day kindergarten class with 28 students.
Our school is an older school in a working class area of Rialto, California.
We are a Title 1 school were the majority of students receive free breakfast and lunch.
My kindergarten students sit on the rug during lessons and I use a whiteboard easel to demonstrate lessons, hold big books and model writing. Our current easel is broken and stained. Our big books slide through the slats and the wooden tray often falls off.
The new magnetic whiteboard easel is slightly bigger, unstained and sturdy.
This would allow all students to clearly see what is being demonstrated. Having a place to set the big book is a necessity, as I read to my students every day. With the whiteboard also being magnetic, it will allow me to use different, colorful and engaging manipulatives. Overall, the students are here to learn and a new easel will help me to reach more students in a fun and engaging way.
