TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students an All Purpose Mobile Teaching Easel to support and enhance their small group instruction.
I teach fifth grade at a small, rural elementary school. I am the only fifth grade teacher at my school which means I have taught or will teach every child that comes through our doors-and I think that is pretty special. My students are curious and enthusiastic. They come to school ready to learn despite the challenges they may face at home.
My students are eager to learn and to grow as scholars.
They prefer hands on learning, the incorporation of technology, and meaningful instruction. My students desire to know the "why" of what we do. They also depend on one to one or small group instruction when creating meaning.
Most of my students are from low economic families and a large majority of them suffer from attention disorders or learning disabilities. The students I teach are slightly below grade level, although there are a handful of students classified as Academically Gifted. I also teach students with limited life experiences. Some of my students have never seen a beach, visited the public library, or toured a museum.
The item I am requesting will help me better meet the needs of all my students. By using the dry erase easel, I can utilize small group instruction within my classroom. This item will provide each student with individualized instruction differentiated group by group based on needs. I will be able to utilize this item in both reading and math groups. For reading, the easel will be used to supplement text and provide further study of specific reading skills. For math, this item will support students in their learning of key mathematical skills. It will provide a place for me to show examples, model strategies, and demonstrate concepts in an environment more conducive to student learning.
By donating to this project, you will ensure that all of my students have access to small group instruction and provide a way for me to better meet their needs.
This item will be beneficial to all types of students. It can be used for intense intervention for low performing students, and as a tool in challenging high flyers.
