Re-Markable Desks for Remarkable Students

Help me give my students personal dry-erase surfaces to cover their desks and work areas. In this age where many assessments are done on our Chromebooks, these surfaces give students a dry erase board right on their desks.

My Students

Teaching third grade has been such a rewarding experience for me. My students bring so much joy and energy into the classroom and with the culture of celebrated achievement at Woodland Elementary, they have worked diligently and made impressive growth. As a Title I school, we have a variety of students that enrich the culture here.

This year, I have a wide range of learners.

I am excited to work with them and see them learn and grow, both in academics and in life skills that will long outlast the classroom.

My Project

In years past, I experimented with this dry-erase surface and it worked exceptionally. The students could work on I-Ready, IXL, or NWEA and simply show their work right on their desks. While it seems simple, this change really did spark their excitement. It also allowed me to quickly assist students as they worked. I could work through example problems right on a desk with a student individually.

These whiteboards will also allow for so many other benefits.

I have had students who wrote reminders for themselves. Others would create a checklist while writing or completing other tasks. Personally, I used them to write a quick note of encouragement or a reminder to students. These dry-erase surfaces will create a lot of excitement in the classroom and will afford students the opportunity to take ownership of their workspace in a new way. I am excited to see how my students will utilize them. Thank you for your time and consideration!
