Mrs. Mejias-Shavers from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Markers To Keep Them Motivated And Working

My students need dry erase markers to do practice in class with the whiteboards, which they love. They do the exercises one by one at their own pace. They respond great to the immediate feedback.

My Students

I teach the newcomers, kids, that arrive to the US from many different countries. They usually arrived scared and nervous about so many new things in their life. Having a teacher that understand them and activities that motivate them to help them be more confident and open to trying new things, the fact that they can be successful in my class opens the door for them to be successful in the other classes.

Seeing the merge of many different cultures in my room is great!

Motivating them to excel and do their best and seeing their faces when they accomplish it is worth a lot!

My Project

I teach for all my students to learn mathematics. Giving them feedback is important. They love when we use the whiteboards with color markers, they have the opportunity to work a problem on their own, raise it when they are ready and get immediate feedback from me. I take the time to congratulate the ones who did well and to work with the ones that didn't. It is an activity that they enjoy very much.

In this era of technology, having materials and activities that keep the students motivated is important.

It looks like something simple, but it is something that makes them happy and motivated. On the other side, when the markers I have go dry and they are trying to do the problems and I can't see the answers, they got really frustrated.
