My students come from a variety of backgrounds. In my classroom alone, we have 6 languages other than English that are spoken in the students' homes, and here in our classroom. To some, this may be overwhelming, but to my students, this is the norm. They love learning about the different cultures of their classmates, and love sharing about their own any time they can. Our classroom library gives the students the chance to read books from all over the world, in various languages, including English, Spanish, and Arabic. No matter the ability level, my students love reading and discovering new books. They are constantly begging for more to be added to our library.
Being in a Title I school comes with it's challenges.
But despite these challenges, I still aim to give my students meaningful, engaging tasks each and everyday, in hopes that the learning and memories will carry over from year to year. My goal is to provide my students with the tools necessary to maintain a growth mindset and to believe, achieve, and succeed.
The Kleenslate Concept Dry Erase Boards would be perfect to use during whole group and small group activities. Students will be using them to show their different math strategies and share them with their peers. We will use these to practice our addition and subtraction with and without regrouping.
Your generous donation for this project will improve our 2nd grade classroom by teaching my students to understand that making mistakes is okay because it helps you learn.
These dry erase boards will also give them the chance to change their thinking, and see how others are looking at the math problems.
