Save Paper and Show What You Know

My students need dry erase boards and erasers so that everyone can actively participate in answering questions posed while I can instantly gauge student understanding.

My Students

Do you remember when a teacher asked a question and you felt like you were going to burst unless you could share what you knew? With dry erase boards, students can write answers, then show them to me. I can quickly scan to see who needs help or when students are ready for me to move on.

My fourth graders are enthusiastic and eager to be challenged.

They love sharing and want to have quick feedback to see if they are on the right track especially in math. Often parents do not have the means to provide the needed materials to ensure their children have everything they need. We've been looking for ways become more green especially using less paper. These Delaware scholars understand that we use too much paper on a daily basis and have suggested using dry erase boards.

My Project

Dry erase boards have so many uses in the classroom. They can be used by students to answer questions for me to scan who understands at a quick glance. These boards are a wonderful tool that can be used in every subject that I teach. Students can write a couple of sentences, compute math problems, draw maps, make estimates, practice vocabulary or use these for educational games. For example, when I teach U.S. Geography students can draw the shape of our country and draw on the major physical features. If something isn't draw accurately, I can easily erase the area of trouble and show the student how to improve. Other times we play vocabulary games where the students need to write there answers within the time limit. Our daily computational review wouldn't use any paper. That is a savings of 360 pieces of paper per student for just 10 minutes of class for the year. Imagine how much would be saved throughout the school for each student!

Dry erase boards would greatly help me to make learning in my classroom much more fun and active for everyone.

For example, we love to play Jeopardy for a review of what we've been studying. When a question is asked, everyone would be expected to write down the answer. I would then draw names to see who would get to submit answers for teams. When learning about descriptive words, I could give a noun and have students write, then share words that often describe the noun. I could go on and on!
