Students in my area of the Chicago Public Schools, come mostly from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. Because of this, they are faced with adversity outside of the school system, but inside, they are proving that they can be productive members of society. They love to learn, show engagement in their learning and a desire to reach the high expectations that I set for them.
Of course, meeting high expectations brings about the need to highly motivated.
My students are highly motivated by choice seating, higher level nonfiction and fiction texts, and being able to collaborate with their peers. We share pride in our hard work and together we plan grow as a healthy school family.
Currently, my students or I create hand made flash cards for math fact fluency practice. Creating hand made materials can be time consuming and ineffective. My students would use these flash card sets to practice math facts with partners or small groups during centers. The dry erase pockets would help cut down the amount of wasted paper because the activities that we complete can be reused.
Using the dry erase pockets allow the students to play center activities more than one time.
The pockets also help preserve the activities, which creates less paper waste each time an activity would need to be replaced. These dry erase pockets have many uses including: math facts, editing in writing, annotating in reading, and exploring in science and social studies.
