Ms. Bertels from Guthrie OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make a Fun Place Through Dry Erase...Boards!

Help me give my students these new boards to help maximize their learning in fun ways! We use the dry erase boards for fun vocabulary review games, notes and would love to have magnets to post student work!

My Students

My students are enthusiastic, passionate and eager to learn! In their district, they do not have a foreign language class until high school. By the time they get to me, they are ready to learn something new. Although we only offer two years of a language at our school, my freshmen are quick to pick up on the new language through fun activities and songs! They are always so fun and ready to participate in whatever game or activity I throw at them.

As a teacher, it makes my heart happy to have my students begging for more language classes!

They recognize the benefit of taking a foreign language and they are excited to use what they learn in the classroom in the real world! I always love hearing their stories of when they speak Spanish to their families or friends on the weekends or outside the school day. I could not ask for better students!

My Project

In my classroom, I have some old and faded shower boards that have acted as my dry erase boards for the last 5 years. They are starting to come off the walls a little bit and the words written can barely be removed with Clorox wipes!

With new magnetic dry erase boards, my students will be able to have a new learning surface on which to maximize their learning and have fun while doing it!

The new white boards will allow clearer notes to be taken and more review games to be played. The kids will be able to post their work on the board with the new magnetic capabilities. It will be awesome to be able to share their achievements where the class can see!
