The Lorax Lives! Help our students write and work out math problems without sacrificing trees.
I teach a classroom of special needs students at a title one school.
My students all have difficulty with fine motor skills. They have difficulty grasping small objects, writing and manipulating small objects. Despite my students' challenges, they work hard to write and work out math problems every day. It is difficult for them to write with paper and pencil. They often push too hard and break the tip of their pencils and rip their paper because they erase too vigorously.
My students have found their voice by expressing themselves through writing when using dry erase boards and markers. It is so important for my students to feel success when writing. Dry erase boards and markers help them focus on their writing instead of worrying about breaking pencils or ripping paper. These boards have a lined side and a plain side. My students will be able to use the plain side to work out math word problems.
The benefits of this project will be two fold because not only will my students be able to write and work out math problems with the appropriate tools, we will also be able to save trees by using less paper and pencils.
Please help my students have the tools to be successful writing and working out math problems.
In addition save the trees by helping us use less paper and pencils. Thank you for considering my project.
