Please Help Me Become a Better Reader and Writer!

My students need an easel so that they can actively engage in whole group and small group instruction as easily as possible.

My Students

Do you remember how much fun it was to come up and engage in learning with the teacher and write on the chalkboard? Help us to become little teachers!

My students are full of energy and ready to learn everyday!

They are a group of young and vibrant six-year-olds learning to become better readers and writers. They attend a Title 1 school in North Carolina. They need an opportunity to have the best education and resources to learn with that every student in the world should!

My Project

Having an easel in a first grade class is essential! Having a large easel to use in my classroom will make lessons run more smoothly. Being that my students are young readers and writers, this easel will make it easier to model strategies and engage in shared reading and writing between the teacher.

My students are just beginning their academic life.

Learning to read and write better is crucial to my first grade students. Having the easel will make my students excited about learning and give them a chance to engage in more meaningful instruction. My students will have an opportunity to show me what they know and become more confident in showing me and other students how smart they are! But, most of all it will be fun for everyone!
