Hands-on Reading, Writing, and Mathematics

My students need a large supply of dry erase markers because they use them everyday when writing words they are learning, writing words they know for reinforcement, using them in literacy centers, and using them during math centers.

I teach Kindergarten at elementary school. My school has a magnet program for the arts, and we are a Title-I school. We are in a high-need area.

My Kindergarten class constantly use dry-erase markers. They need to have hands-on involvement in everything they do. When they use dry erase materials, they are getting the opportunity to practice sounding out words, writing words that they have learned, creating sentences, using them during interactive writing, and using them in specific math centers (ex: "Grab & Count" center allows them to count and write the correct number on a laminated sheet.).

We just need more dry-erase markers with erasers. These would benefit the students because they can use the tissues for what they are meant for. We already have enough boards, but markers run out rather quickly.

Your help will allow my students to continue to build on reading, writing, and math skills that they absolutely need in order to be successful in Kindergarten and beyond.
