Mrs. Smith from Columbia SC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Never BORED with BOARDS!

Help me give my students individual dry erase boards, erasers, and magnetic math manipulatives in order to deepen conceptual understanding and stay actively engaged during math.

My Students

My students are some of the most curious, enthusiastic learners I have ever had the pleasure of teaching. Recently, when discussing the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, one of my students said to the class, "You just have to look at a challenge as a gift. It is an opportunity."

When asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, one of my students blew my mind when he responded with, "I want to be debt-free and self-sufficient!" Another student goes home every night and studies the weather voluntarily and comes to school each morning, ready to deliver a weather report to the class.

My students truly love learning. They have a lot to contribute and want to be actively engaged.

My Project

Instructional time will be maximized as I am able to quickly assess understanding with one look at each student's board. Instead of only being able to call on one person to come up and show the class how they got their answer, all students will be actively engaged and able to show me and their classmates how they solved a problem.

During math instruction, EVERY student will be able to show their work on a personal dry erase board!

Students who don't feel comfortable answering orally, will still be able to share by showing me their board.

During math workshop and independent practice, students will love using the magnetic frames, number bonds, and flash cards to practice important math skills.
