Teach, then Re-Teach

Help me give my students a white board and flexible seating so that I can provide direct and deliberate intervention lessons.

My Students

More than half of my students come from a low income home, where they face challenges that many have never had to face. Through adversity, these children truly try their very best. Despite everything they go through, they are motivated, excited, and willing to learn- which is why I show up to work ready to give my all to these kiddos.

In a Title I school, it is very difficult to get the proper supplies needed in order to successfully teach every child.

My classroom is small and only has one useable white board, which I use for whole class lessons and for my projector. I do not have a spot in my room where I can work with a small group for intervention, which is the time where I can pull my struggling students and work one-to-one or with a small group to reteach concepts. This time is essential as more than half of my students are performing below the state standard in all core subjects (math, reading, science).

Both the white board and the chair will allow for me to work with students and successfully provide the deliberate and direct intervention time that is needed.

My Project

Both the easel and the flexible seating will provide special opportunities for my students to work in small group and one-to-one settings. The easel will be used as both a teaching tool and a manipulative. It is my goal to not only use the board to provide instruction (specifically during math and reading intervention), but to have the students become engaged by using magnetic manipulatives to reason and develop new strategies.

The students will be able to visualize and investigate difficult concepts that may be preventing them from moving forward.

Further, by providing flexible seating options, my students will be able to begin to channel their energy and "need for movement" into another source. Rather than becoming distracted during intervention time, they will be able to use the chair to help them focus more on learning and less on excessive movement.
