My students need seat storage sacks to help keep desks neat and organized. They need the lined write and wipe boards and erasers for practice with penmanship.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We start the day with the "Morning Message" to greet the students. I want my students to be fluent readers, and know basic math skills. My biggest challenge is ample practice time."I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." Students learn by doing.
I have 1st graders.
At this time I have 6 boys and 7 girls. They enjoy activities with lots of movement. They are like sponges: they soak everything up, but some have problems retaining the information. My campus is predominately low SES, black and Hispanic, ESL, and bilingual students.
The students will use these resources for teacher directed quick assessment. I can quickly see if the students are grasping the concepts being presented. They will also use the boards and erasers for practice of handwriting. I can easily help students write and form letters correctly. When students are paired they can use the boards and erasers to collaborate and share information.
This donations will make a big impact on my classroom by helping students become more organized with the seat sacks.
They will help them limit the clutter on desktops and give them a neater work space. The whiteboards and erasers will help the students with different modes, such as hands on learners and visual learners. The group activity and sharing will encourage students to become better communicators.
