Help me give my students a new dry erase easel for our Language Arts, Math, and Morning Meeting lessons. We use this for everything and our current one is breaking. Our school budget cannot afford to replace this.
My students are second graders, who are in a two way language immersion program, learning their curriculum in both languages. They are very excited to learn in English and Spanish, and our goal this year is to continue their progress in reading and writing in both languages. Many speak either only English or only Spanish at home, and as they continue this program, they will not only get stronger in their native language, but equally strong in the other language.
They are very creative, fun, and sweet kids, most of who come from low income households.
Giving them the gift of two languages is going to help them get so far in life and a give them that chance at a bright future. They have seen their parents struggle so hard for what they have, that they do not take a good education for granted.
I use a dry erase easel to teach almost everything. Our current one is breaking and without this, they will miss out on the ability to work in differentiated centers and successfully pay attention when we are in whole-group instruction. An easel helps tremendously in teaching my students because I can move it around and use the dry erase side and the chart paper side for writing.
We need an easel everyday for all our Morning Meetings, Math, and Language Arts lessons daily because it is portable and easy for the students to see from all parts of the classroom.
This is a major component of our classroom and our school budget cannot afford to replace it. We also need some supplies that go along with it, such as chart paper with markers, and dry erase markers for the board. We use chart paper daily for our morning meeting message and our vocabulary and spelling words practice. These run out so fast, as do our dry erase markers, which are used regularly for Math and Language Arts instruction. I have to model everything I teach so I am constantly writing on the board.
