My Students

I teach awesome first graders in a rural, low-economic area.

For the last 2 years ALL students at my school are receiving free breakfast and lunch.

Which means funding is extremely limited. We use most of our allotment to purchase copy paper and construction paper. We have a school carnival and the proceeds from that go to purchase other classroom necessities.

What I need and am unable to get through my school is a magnetic white board. My students are fascinated with magnets!! I have a white board but when doing word work and math lessons it would be much easier if I could just have some magnetic math materials and magnetic white board instead of a cookie sheet.

This year our school decided to block in first grade. I am on a team with another teacher. We teach our homerooms reading groups. I teach my homeroom and her homeroom math and science. Which means this project could have double the impact!! I love math and science and have really enjoyed this year.

My Project

I chose a magnetic whiteboard so that my students would have a much larger space to work with magnetic letters and magnetic math manipulatives during center times while I work with students in small groups.

I currently only have a whiteboard and my students have to use a cookie sheet or the radiator.

This results in disagreements about who gets the space to place their magnetic maniupulative and I lose valuable instructional time dealing with these disruptions. Having the large space of the magnetic whiteboard would allow them to have their own space to complete center activities. Thus allowing me to continue with my small group instruction.
