My students need dry erase markers to use to practice symbols and problems on a daily basis in both Japanese and Math.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Practice. That is our philosophy. We do a math problem, another, and another. In Japanese, students learn the language by writing. Our students use a lap-size whiteboard and a dry erase marker to practice whatever they are learning that day. We use them hours a day in multiple classes, every day.
My students are 6-12th graders of various ethnicities and socioeconomic levels.
They include everyone from special needs to foreign exchange students. The are readers and watchers, listeners and talkers, all eager to learn. We are a small (100 students) charter school in an urban setting. We draw mostly from the surrounding area, but have select students from as far as an hour's drive away.
I am requesting a supply of dry erase markers. With these markers in use 5 days a week 3 hours a day, we are going through them like water. The best way to learn is to practice, and practice they do. PreAlgebra students and Japanese students who write and write and write!
It is so important to learn these skills and to have the immediate feedback that whiteboards afford.
Practicing and holding up for teacher approval is the most important tool we have in our toolbox for teaching these students!
