Mrs. Miller from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Look How EASELy We Learn

Help me give my students a magnetic writing easel they can use to practice writing numbers, letters, shapes, as well as counting and sorting magnetic items. I can also model writing sentences, spacing words, and sentence structure.

My Students

My students are inquisitive kids who love learning about everything.

I have 20 fantastic and energetic pre-kindergartners in central Oklahoma City who are eager to be at school and learn.

My students come from differing backgrounds and speak different languages. They are funny, dedicated, brilliant, kind, inquiring minds who enjoy learning and beginning our morning with a consistent routine. My students are 4 and 5 year olds who learn by using visual vocabulary, sentence structure, and punctuation in order to help solidify the English language content they are learning.

We learn together in a PK-4 school that is an amazing community for our highly impoverished population. Our school has a large population of English Language Learners with high needs for differentiation and authentic learning experiences. All of the students we teach are on the free and reduced lunch program. Our school is a family of teachers, support staff and learners that truly care about one another and work together to deliver the best for each of our kids.

My Project

My students need to be able to see me model writing for them so they can learn spacing, sentence structure, punctuation, and vocabulary words. My wall space is very limited, and having this easel will provide needed whiteboard space for me to demonstrate so many different things our students will be learning, as well as give them a new center to practice their writing, as well as playing magnetic games, like sorting and counting. I know that this easel will be used constantly in my classroom and it would be really beneficial to both me and to my students. Another reason that I am requesting this particular easel is because it is somewhat taller, which will allow me to stand up as I write on the board, and do not have to lean over. This will allow students to see as I am writing. Plus a taller easel will allow all students to see what is on the board - not just the students at the front. The magnetic sentence strips will come in handy so that I can pre-write what I will be displaying and have it ready to go when I begin the lesson.
