My class is quite diverse. I have students from a variety of different economic and academic backgrounds. This year I am teaching small reading groups all day. Every day I try to meet each student’s needs. This year I need an easel for my small group instruction. Easels provide students a visual aid to better help them understand what is being taught. It helps me provide direct, explicit instruction through the use of visuals. Please help me to reach my goal of fostering a productive learning environment. Thank you!
I've recently begun teaching small reading groups. I love working with small groups, but need the proper tools to deliver the best instruction I can. If I had an easel I'd be able to help students visually organize the information I'm giving them. For example, I'd post learning goals on the easel to remind students what they are working on in their reading. My school has recently started using Thinking Maps, an easel would allow me to model these maps throughout our time together. An easel is a tool I would use daily and I know it would help me push my students to the next level.
