My students need a new easel to replace one that went missing this school year.
I am entering my fourth year as the ESOL teacher at our school. I had a beautiful easel that I used every day in my lessons, to hold charts, chart paper, big books, and more, but it went missing over the summer break. We miss it greatly and need to replace it.
I have thirty students who are from fourteen different countries and speak seven different languages, including Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Amharic, and Japanese.
They are in grades Pre K all the way through eighth grade, from four years old to twelve years old. They are beautiful, bright children, who are well behaved and eager to learn. Our school is a high poverty school in an urban area. Although the children don't have much, they work very hard and excel academically.
I will use this easel in my everyday teaching. With the younger children, I will use it to hold and display the big books that we read. It has lines on one side so I can use it to demonstrate printing and cursive. It is magnetic so we can use the magnet letters we have to spell and read words. The students love making words on the board! It has hooks so we can hold our pocket charts and use it to all sorts of things, such as sort nouns or verbs, or sequence stories that we write on sentence strips. The possibilities and ideas for creative teaching are endless. We will begin using the easel the moment we get it during virtually every lesson we do, and future students will use it for many years to come.
The easel is a center point in the beginning of many of our lessons.
It has been difficult to teach without one. I have have been left awkwardly holding the big books. I have had to teach from a board that is not close to where the students sit, trying to demonstrate letter formation on sentence strips attached to magnets on a chalkboard that is quite old and not in good condition. This easel will make our lessons flow much better.
