My students need a break from paper. These 40 Dry-Erase Boards and markers will not only save trees, but will save us from the tedium of filling out math worksheets.
They just want math to be fun. Instead we spend countless hours writing down problems in workbooks and worksheets and I only get a chance to look at a few each day. Whiteboards would allow me to instantly see who needs help, and who is ready to go on without destroying a forest in the process.
My students are second language learners who live in a depressed neighborhood.
Their parents are working two jobs to make ends meet, or they are out looking for jobs that don't exist anymore. Parents keep them inside where it is safe, and they don't have to worry about them. Despite that, they are thirsty for an education. I just want them to know that there is more to learning than filling out a worksheet.
If every student has a whiteboard and dry erase marker, I can put up a math problem and have them solve it all together. I will be able so see right away who needs help and who needs a challenge. Students will be able to share in groups how they solved it, explain what they did, and prove that they have the right answer. They can use them in math competitions. They can bring them to workshop, and I can help them to figure out what is wrong with their answers. Most impotently, they will not have to spend time writing in a journal that they will never look at again.
Every year we go through reams and reams of paper in order to practice division, multiplication, simplifying fractions and more.
This practice can be done on a whiteboard with a cloth rag. Our kids love to do work on whiteboards in small groups, and this project will allow every student in the room to have one to work on each day. Thank you for your support.
