Show Me How!

Help me give my students a mobile whiteboard, easel pads, and magnetic hooks so they have the tools they need to lead the class and share their thinking with others!

My Students

My students are a fun, outgoing, caring group. They enjoy learning and are very independent. Our school is filled with a majority of low-income students, meaning many of them come to school to access technology and literature. I was an avid reader when I was younger (and still am) and I look forward to instilling that love of reading in my students every day!

My group is made up of a bunch of team players- they want to see other students excel and find pleasure in helping them achieve their goals.

I could not ask for a better group of students and I'm lucky to have them in my class this year!

My Project

I'm asking for a portable easel, along with chart paper and hooks, so that my students can have a place to show the other students how they arrived at their answer while we're working. We have some tools, but none that are this versatile and meet our needs. We would be able to use these tools in a variety of ways, and that's what I'm most excited about!

It gives them an opportunity to become leaders and teachers- gaining confidence and independence!

The kids would love to take over and explain their thinking to the class in math or write what they loved best about the story we just read in English class. This project gives them the tools they need to succeed in many different subjects and in many different ways!
