Student White Boards with Erasers and Expo Markers!
Help me give my students the ability to show their understanding and practice the skill with a whiteboard. This is essential in the classroom and will help while students are learning from home as well.
I teach second grade at a Title I school. My students qualify for free lunch and breakfast. Most of the parents work one or two jobs, so these students are learning the lessons on their own. I would like to make the lessons easy for students to show understanding and practice what we are learning, Second grade is a great age to teach! My students have many interests and of course many different math and reading abilities.
My job will be to bridge any learning gaps that occurred due to everything the students have been through with COVID-19.
I like to create an environment where students love learning. I also like to emphasize the social and emotional lessons of teaching kindness towards others.
When I teach, I daily give my students the chance to show what they know by writing or solving the math problem or phonics skill by using a black Expo marker on a whiteboard.
This is such a great learning method because the student can practice writing words with our phonics skill or practicing our math strategies, and I can quickly read from across the room if it is correct.
It is a great way for me to formatively evaluate who understands the standard. I am able to quickly determine who understands and who needs additional support. My class set has been taken, and I am very hopeful to have a new set for my current class to benefit from whiteboards.
