My Students

"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you" ~BB King An easel is the focal point during our whole group rug time. We write messages on it to search for high frequency words. It is also utilized during big book story time.

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do." ~Eleanor Roosevelt I work at a Title One school in Central Indiana.

Over seventy percent of our students are on free/reduced lunch. I have a classroom full of 22 sweet, eager students who are ready to learn. Even the most eager student gets discouraged at times, and believes they 'just can't' complete a task. I love seeing the pride on their faces when they find out that they CAN indeed to the very thing they thought they could not. Our whole group rug time is a highlight of our day. We use this time to discuss various high frequency words included in our daily morning message. We also read our Big Books. My students and I would like a new easel replace our old one.

My Project

Each morning, my students and I gather on the carpet. We use the easel every day, multiple times a day. The easel is a place where we read through our morning message and the students identify various high frequency words. We also use the easel as word writing practice. During our math block, it is also a place where students can come up and write numbers or simple math problems. We also use it for our Big Book reading as well as a place to create and hang anchor charts. My students would be thrilled to have a new easel to utilize during our learning time each day.

This easel will be an amazing tool to enhance my teaching and improve the learning experience for my students.

They will be able to have a new tool to add to their hands-on learning. My students like to explore new things and use them as well. I know that this new easel and chart paper will be used multiple times daily.
