My Students

In a busy classroom, it can be hard for a small group of students to focus on the teacher or their group-mates while receiving instruction and collaborating. My students need a versatile easel to help them focus on their task and present their learning during small group instruction.

My fourth-grade students live in an urban, low-income city comprised largely of immigrant families.

Many of my students speak a language other than English at home. Despite the challenges that they face, the students in my school are consistently eager to learn and enthusiastic about new and exciting learning opportunities. The fourth-grade students in my classroom represent a range of abilities and learning styles. Every student is different when it comes to the strategies, grouping, and environment that allow him or her to learn best. Many of my students require small-group instruction to reinforce the skills and concepts that the class is working on. With my typically large class sizes, coupled with the diversity of my students, it is often more efficient to meet with students in small groups and present differentiated instruction that is tailored to their individual needs, rather than presenting content to the whole class.

My Project

Portions of my literacy and math instruction are structured into a workshop model, during which students are broken into groups, and rotate through different learning activities. One of the activities is always small group instruction with me, while the other activities vary from group work to independent learning tasks as students apply and practice the skills and concept we are working with. When I meet with small groups, I am able to differentiate my instruction to the needs of the group. Sometimes I reteach a skill or concept that students are struggling with; at other times I present advanced content to a higher group of students. The versatile whiteboard easel that I am requesting will be perfect for presenting content to students in a small group, and the flip chart will be used to create new anchor charts and graphic organizers with students. Students can also use the easel--which converts from floor stand to tabletop--to collaborate with a group to prepare a presentation.

An easily portable and versatile easel with a flip chart and markers will provide my students with the valuable opportunity to actively participate in the learning process during small group instruction and collaborative group work.

Students will benefit from having visuals clearly displayed in front of them as they are learning, and from being able to create their own visuals and graphic organizers to support their learning.
