My students need dry erase markers for small group instruction in math.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with all sorts of challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I try my best to make sure that school is a place where they can learn and feel safe.
Simply put, my kids are awesome.
They like to move; they love math and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households or by grandparents and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and, unfortunately, may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "normal." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom they become "my babies." I can't control what happens once they leave me, but I can certainly make sure that their time with me is meaningful.
Working with small groups is huge in my district so having plenty of dry erase markers for my kids is imperative. I have seen tremendous growth with my kids by making sure that I work with my groups. Their confidence and grades have dramatically improved. My kids and I have gone through a ton of dry erase markers because having 84 kids, using the same markers in a day, tend to dry out very quickly. My kids and I love getting together in the small groups but desperately need more markers because our supply is running extremely low as of today.
