My Students

I teach first grade in primary school located in a high poverty area in rural, Eastern North Carolina. The students in my classroom come from various backgrounds and have their own individual learning styles and needs.

My classroom is a S.T.E.M class where we strive everyday to infuse the engineering and design process through hands on learning in all academic areas.

My first graders are very active. They enjoy learning by doing and sharing their ideas with each other through collaboration.

My Project

My classroom is fairly small and my students need an area where they can easily collaborate together in a small group or as an entire class.

A dry erase board at the front of the classroom would provide a space for collaboration as well as a display for anchor charts, student work or other visuals.

The students in my class come to school each day with their own individual learning needs and styles. Each day we work in various settings (whole group, small group, partners, individually) to meet the needs of each child. Since we are a S.T.E.M classroom the engineering and design process is implemented into the majority of lessons; therefore collaboration between peers is encouraged. A dry erase board would give groups a place to quickly write down ideas and share with their peers as well.

A centrally located dry erase board would also be ideal for math instruction. For example, when solving an addition word problem, I could show each step in a different color. This would be key for students who learn best visually.

Students could also be active participants in whole group lessons by being able to come up to the dry erase board and demonstrate their though process for their peers. They could easily erase mistakes are show additional ways of thinking.

A magnetic dry erase board would also be a great place to display anchor charts. Students of all learning styles benefit from anchor charts that serve as visuals of topics being taught.
