My students need individual whiteboards to not only develop their fine motor skills but to also develop their writing abilities.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
In my Kindergarten classroom, the children learn to read and write early in the year. The children learn how to form letters and then words. We practice this on a daily basis and by the end of the school year most of the class is reading and writing.
My school is located in a rural community with over half of our school population on free and reduced lunch.
Our school is in a caring and committed to education community but many of our families have few resources. My Kindergarten students love to learn each day and get so excited when they can begin to read and write on their own.
Currently in my classroom, we use chalkboards for individual writing practice. Most of the chalkboards are old and I am no longer able to use them for whole group instruction. As we learn letters, I would use the whiteboards for the children to practice writing the letters. When we begin to learn sight words, the children could practice this skill on them as well.
The use of a whiteboard is clean, efficient and very cost effective. The dual sided ones will enable me to move from the free space writing on one side to the lined writing on the other which will prepare the children for first grade writing.
This donation will enable my classroom of students to develop and refine their writing and reading skills.
My school budget does not allow for this kind of expenditure for the entire class. Not only will this class benefit but many classes in the years to come will as well.
