Learning From Our Mistakes

My students need dry erase boards to work out math problems and be able to correct their errors using dry erase markers, plus paper, pens, and a pencil sharpener.

My Students

My students are special because they enjoy project based learning where they work with each other to solve the problems. While working together, they are learning and inspiring themselves and their peers. Through technology and group work, my students are able to better understand each lesson and see the purpose of each life as they apply to real life situations. Through projects and activities, my students remain engaged in the classroom and well behaved because it keeps them on task.

My Project

These materials will improve the learning in my classroom because it will enable my students to use the dry erase boards and markers during group work and class discussions where they give feedback. It will enable my students to work out their math problems on the boards with me, while I work the examples on the board. It will also allow them to quickly erase their mistakes and make corrections without having to use paper and pencil. This will allow students to write their answers on the board and hold their boards in the air to show me their answers without me having to walk around the room constantly. Also, paper, pens and a new pencil sharpener will make learning more efficient in my classroom.
