Rolling Out Learning: An Interactive Tool on Wheels

My students need a rolling easel, paper, and markers to visually see and interact with their learning during whole and small group instruction.

My Students

Can you imagine what hands would say if they could talk? Well when 20+ hands are energetically raised in the air during a lesson to come up to the board, I think it sounds something like "Pick Me! Pick Me!" Help students participate by rolling out learning with this interactive easel on wheels!

I teach first grade in a rural area in Pennsylvania.

Many of my students come from low-income families with a wide range of learning needs and challenges. Our district has been facing great financial difficulties and has cut our already limited budget for resources and supplies. Many of our supplies are outdated and worn. I currently use an old wooden art easel that is broken and will no longer hold my big books or chart paper. It is so important for first graders to have resources, like an easel, that will allow for hands-on and interactive learning opportunities.

My Project

My students love to be actively involved in the learning process. First grade takes a lot of modeling of skills as well as instruction in both small groups and large groups. This easel, chart paper, and marker sets would allow my students to be able to not only see the skills I am teaching, but also would allow them to interact with the lesson and learn from each other. This easel is very versatile and would be used in a number of ways: morning messages, shared writing, whole group reading of big books, vocabulary instruction, math skills, etc. Students come up to the board to write on it, point to a sight word in a big book, or to solve a challenging math problem. It allows for all students to see and participate in learning at the same time and it will be an invaluable resource for teaching my first graders the skills they need to be successful learners!

Can you imagine what hands would say if they could have an interactive white board easel to learn on?

I think they would say something like "Thank you! Thank you!" Your help to roll out learning with this interactive easel on wheels would provide my students with a hands-on opportunity to learn, participate, and grow!
