Mr. Kelly from New Ellenton SC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Promoting Active Learning With Dry Erase Boards

Help me give my students dry erase boards for the classroom to encourage active learning and engagement. This will allow all of my students to participate actively in social studies with questions and answers during lessons.

My Students

My students are highly motivated and encourage each other in my classroom at New Ellenton Middle School where science, history, math, ELA, and the arts all collide together in a STEAM atmosphere! Together, with your help, we can make their learning experience that much more meaningful in a positive environment. I teach both six and seventh grade, and this is the first time a lot of my students are spending a large quantity of time devoted to social studies, which is why I would like to find fun ways to keep them engaged and interested in our content.

My Project

These dry erase boards will help all of my students have fun with learning and help even the quietest students participate with the rest of the class. My students will be able to have team review games and even self checks with this class set of dry erase boards.

It is pivotal for them to have more ways to learn and be active in the classroom to help make history fun.

With your help, I can make these hands-on learning materials a reality for my students and provide an enjoyable way for them to learn new concepts & review for tests. Thank you!
