My students need white boards and markers to record their answers during whole class and small group lessons.
"Look teacher. I can multiply now!" Remember the excitement you felt when you finally mastered something difficult? Did you want to share that sense of accomplishment with someone else? White boards and dry erase markers can do that for a child.
I teach 3rd grade in a small town located in California's Central Valley.
Some of my children come from impoverished homes with little educational support at home. They are sweet children with a strong desire to learn and do well. They need regular feedback to encourage and cement their learning.
My children will benefit from having a whiteboard to use daily during whole and small group instruction. Whiteboards and markers allow me to view their learning and readjust my teaching accordingly at that moment. I can use this information to get help for a struggling student right then instead of waiting for a paper pencil activity to be turned in at the end of the day. Whiteboards allow me multiple opportunities to praise and encourage my students. We will use them during reading, writing, and math. And the extra bonus is it saves paper!
No longer will the quiet child fall through the cracks.
All of the children will have an opportunity and an equal voice to be heard when they hold up their answers on whiteboards. I can immediately give positive feedback and encourage students to be risk takers when learning something new.
