My students are an amazing group of kids who are chomping at the bit to learn all they can in 4th grade. They are so excited to be here. Our school, comprised of K-5 students, is focusing this year on having a growth mindset.
My kids have already taken this idea to heart.
They are hard workers and dedicated learners. My students already understand that mistakes and failures are parts of learning and help us grow; so they are not afraid to try in my class! They welcome the challenges I give them because they understand that hard things help their brains grow and become smarter!
I need a small teacher whiteboard to use when working with small groups of students. It has a stand that allows me to write on it easily while it stands up on its own; this makes it easy for everyone in the small group to see what I am writing on the whiteboard. It's also magnetic, so I will be able to use magnetic geometric shapes and fraction strips to demonstrate math concepts.
As a 4th grade teacher, I have to employ many different strategies to increase engagement and interest in how my students are learning.
I chose a class set of small, personalized whiteboards for my students. I need enough for each student to have their own whiteboard to keep in their desk at all times. Students will use these whiteboards to respond to questions and hold up their boards to show their understanding of various math, reading, and science concepts. This is a great way to get the class involved; they love working on mini whiteboards! This is also a great, fast way for me to see and assess my kids' understanding.
