Short On the Budget, Not On Enthusiasm...Ole!

My students need dry erase markers! I like to have an interactive classroom and I have dry-erase sheets for every student but no markers!

My Students

A whole class set of dry-erase sheets and no dry-erase markers doesn't do anyone any good, but that's exactly what my students have right now. We are all hyper-aware of the need for kids to be literate, this includes the foreign language classroom and these markers are the key to Spanish literacy.

My students are an outstanding and diverse group of middle school kids.

Our school is a K-8 in an urban setting. My students are in their first years of Spanish study and I want to set them up for success in high school and beyond. Currently, some are very enthusiastic about their foreign language studies, which I'd love to keep that way, and others are a little nervous, a feeling I'd like to help them conquer.

My Project

The key to engagement and learning is keeping kids active! My students love to use their personal dry-erase sheets in my Spanish class. It's great for them because it's engaging, and it's even better for me because I can check very quickly whether everyone is learning and participating.

With your help, my students will be writing fluently in Spanish before you know it!

You can make this the class that they remember forever! Markers may seem like a tiny thing to ask for but this truly is a needed everyday supply that will go a very long way toward increasing student achievement in my class. Thanks for your help! Gracias!!!
