My Students

Our school is dedicated to closing the learning gap by challenging the norm of education through our creative and innovative strategies to reach our black and brown scholars. Many of our scholars experience hardship frequently, and we are here to support them through their educational and life journey. We believe that having a stable learning environment will move our scholars ahead to greater successes in higher education. We inspire our scholars to reach high levels of academic and social achievement and become future leaders through a collaborative support system. With our scholars at home in Distance Learning, they need our help and support even more. We need to get some supplies into their hands so that we do not miss valuable learning opportunities.

My Project

Our scholars need a small white board to practice writing numbers and letters. In our small groups, we will be asking questions for the scholars to respond to. Instead of hearing all the voices and background noise in response, we want to have a reusable tool for our scholars that will let them respond in a way they can show their work.

Teachers need an easy way to assess if a scholar is understanding what we are teaching.

These lap boards make that possible. For instance, if we show five cubes to them, we would ask them to count and write the number that matches the set.

We would also use this for learning how to make our letters and numbers. Paper would not be an efficient or easy way to have our scholars practice. They just would not be able to get that immediate feedback that they need.
