My students need personal dry erase boards and markers to help motivate them and to show that learning can be fun.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are struggling readers and they can be hard to reach at times. Most of these students come from low income families and they get little support from home. Personal white boards and markers will make the lessons seem a little less boring and a lot more fun.
My middle school students are those who are not passing the FCAT assessment and who need extra work with reading skills.
Many students are children of migrants and they are struggling with their English. They are working hard, but sometimes repeating the same thing day after day becomes boring and frustrating for them. These boards will bring some fun into classroom!
I am requesting personal whiteboards and markers. The whiteboards are on handles and they are just big enough for the students to write an answer on. After they answer a question about something, I will have them hold up their whiteboards and I will be able to see who has the right answer and who has the wrong ones. They will be excited to use the boards, and it gives me a chance to see who needs more work and who is grasping the lesson.
The students will really enjoy the personal whiteboards and it will make reading class so much more enjoyable for them.
These are kids who have been told since third grade that they are failures because they haven't passed the FCAT. I want to build them up and help them realize that they are learners and learning is fun.
