Pocket Chart Support for Reading, Writing, and S.S.!

My students need pocket charts for organizing their comprehension skills, developing their vocabulary, and analyzing different literary aspects. In addition, the class needs two chart stands so they can access these large multi-curriculum charts throughout the classroom for differentiated learning.

I teach a diverse group of middle-school students comprised of mainly visual and kinesthetic learners. As a result, there is a great deal of differentiated learning in my classroom and we use a lot of pocket charts to better understand and retain the material. I have found these pocket charts to be essential to engage the students' in learning a variety of curriculum area concepts. I have watched the curriculum come alive as students create timelines, manipulate equations and numberlines, edit sentences, write and post math word problems/stories, and participate in quiz games. However, access to the charts becomes difficult because they have to be "pinned" or "clipped" up, since we have no where to hang them and only one is magnetic. This makes interacting with these large charts difficult for the students because the frequently fall down and slip due to their weight and size. The two stands I am requesting would allow me to accommodate the different sized pocket charts we use for instruction and to distribute these charts to different groups throughtout the classroom, so that the groups can work together to complete their literacy, math, or social studies activities. In this way, they can successfully complete story summarizations, vocabulary building, word-webbing, math equations, and history analysis. In addition, I am requesting a KWL pocket chart, vocabulary word of the day chart, and 4-in-1 pocket chart. These charts will allow my students to further develop their comprehension skills and can be utilized in language arts, social studies, and math! For instance, the 4-in-1 chart can be used for sequence in a story, different types of figurative language, steps in a math problem, possible strategies for a math solution, or even looking at a colony in social studies from an economic, agricultural, climate, or population point of view. As you can see, the charts lend themselves to a variety of uses. The interdisciplinary functionality of these charts increases their educational value and allows my students to benefit from these materials multiple times in a week and sometimes even multiple times in a single day! If you choose to fund this proposal, you will be enabling my students to better utilize these valuable classroom resources and will allow them to work in groups throughout the classroom while studying different curriculum areas. In addition, these materials will continue to impact my future classes of kinesthetic and visual learners.
