The children of today are our leaders for tomorrow. In an ever-changing and unpredictable world, children need to be exposed to a variety of experiences in the classroom in order to best meet their needs for education and their future. My children are enthusiastic to learn but are limited in accessing their learning outside of the classroom due to socio-economic factors. My class is in a Title One school.
With a desire to learn and the appropriate education tools, the limits placed on children are diminished and the world becomes more reachable for them!
The children in my class are willing to learn and experience new learning opportunities. They thrive on kinesthetic opportunities and e-learning and engage fully in opportunities that are provided to them. Many of the children in my class come from military families and spend much time with only one parent. Many others come from single-parent families and/or live in low-income households.
The children in my class undertake whole class and small group work during which time I use an easel to model how the children should be answering questions or completing the work. Sometimes this modeled work is needed by the children during their independent work to refer to, however I need the easel to conduct small group work.
The use of an additional easel in class would allow children to be able to see adult modeled work during both whole class and small group learning and refer to the modeled work during independent practice.
The use of the clipboards would allow children to sit on the carpet or in the reading area and complete work in comfort or at designated station areas rather than sitting all day at a desk.
