As a third grade teacher in the Parkchester section of the Bronx, we are required to do reading in small leveled groups. This experience is essential to effective learning because my 25 students are on a variety of reading levels. Reading groups gives the students the opportunity for instruction and literature conversations on their level. During our reading group time which is 45 minutes daily, there are 5 groups running consecutively, each in a different space in the room. A very important part of running a reading group is being able to discuss the literature and the focus skill. While doing this, the students and/or the teacher often need to write down information such as story events, character information, or any other writing in relation to the skill being taught. This writing is part of a literature discussion that needs to be visualized by all group members. To do so, it would be very helpful to have dry-erase easels that fold up for easy storage. It is very difficult with budgeting restraints for our principal to provide these boards for our school of approximately 50 classes. I am requesting dry erase as opposed to chalk boards because a large percentage of our students are asthmatic. Chalk dust unfortunately worsens this condition, and I have already covered our main board with dry erase for the same reason. Thank you for your help and consideration...our kids will have a great and convenient learning experience thanks to you!!
