My Students

Our school is a Title I school in Las Vegas, Nevada. The school is able to offer 100% free breakfast and lunch to all of our students. As a new teacher, I noticed that my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to keep things engaging and provide my students with a meaningful learning experience.

Thirty percent of my students are reading and writing below grade level.

I am hoping to encourage and motivate my students to embrace their learning experience.

My Project

The use of reusable pocket sheets and dry erase boards is a daily activity in my classroom. Using the workshop model in Language Arts, students use whiteboards for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. What becomes a problem is the fact that the markers never seem to last, erasers seem to disappear, and the whiteboards slowly become stained from frequent use.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. As a teacher, I am striving to create a positive learning experience.
