I teach 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts at Denham Springs Junior High in Louisiana. I have 8th grade students until the last two hours of the day. Then, I teach 7th grade students. Every single day when I write information on the dry erase board for my 7th graders, they do not finish copying everything down by the end of the block. Unfortunately, I must erase everything because I must have my board ready for the 8th graders the next day. Then when the 7th graders come into the classroom, I must erase what I had on the board for the 8th graders and write 7th grade information all over again. This is hard on the 8th graders, too, because they may not be finish writing their information, and I must erase it. This is hard on the 7th graders because they are NEVER finished writing their information and I must erase theirs. And finally, this is hard on me. I am constantly rewriting information on the same board for both grade levels. If I could have another dry erase board, then this problem would be eliminated. I could then leave the 8th grade information on the board and the 7th graders would have their own dry erase board with their information still on it from the previous day's lesson. The only good thing that I can see from my situation is that I am developing muscles in my right arm from all of the constant writing!! Please help my classroom by surprising us with another white, dry erase borad! Thank you!
