Lets Chalk It Up to Age!

My students need a white board to cover the original 1929 chalkboard.

My Students

I teach three 7th grade classes of English Language Arts.

Our school is located in an area of high poverty.

My classroom is an inclusive classroom, and I service students with various educational needs. I like to make sure that all their needs are met every day.

The school has suffered many budget cuts that have left us with very little money to purchase anything other than mandated material. However, none of the district issues have detracted from my students desire to learn.

My Project

Last year I was transferred to a classroom on the other side of the building. That classroom still has the original 1929 chalkboard. The chalkboard is not even functional. It is all pitted and not able to be written on. This year I used bulletin board paper and some posters to cover it up. I would like to get a white board so that the wall can be more functional. I can use it to write student objectives and daily assignments. Students can use it for KWL's, Webs, T-Chart, vocabulary activities and responding to questions. A white board will bring my classroom out of 1929.
