Gellin' Towards 6th Grade Math Mastery!

The cost of mini gel boards and styluses is $185, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

In my class, my students used to be able to use mini-white boards about once a week to practice math. This is an extremely useful tool for learning, as all students are engaged during this process and I can immediately check which students understand the concept. However, our white boards are getting hard to maintain. The boards are stained from so much use. Dry-erase markers dry out after a few months of use and are very expensive to replace. We have recently had to only use the boards in groups, as we do not have enough markers for each student to use their own board. Gel boards would solve this problem for us! Gel boards come with a stylus for each student to work out a math problem and write their answer. This would accomplish the same goal, but we would be able to keep using them without worrying about the expensive markers that are necessary for the white boards. Thank you in advance for your consideration! 65 students and one very happy teacher in Oakland appreciate your help!
