We Can Easel-y Enhance Our Instruction

Help me give my students a teaching easel so that we can conduct reading and writing mini-lessons and create anchor charts that we can refer to throughout the school year.

My Students

I teach Kindergarten in a small rural school in Southern Illinois. In our school, 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds, but they all have two things in common...they love to learn and they always feel safe and loved while they are at school!

My students walk into our Kindergarten classroom each day full of energy, excitement for learning, and a positive attitude.

They are eager to learn and do their best.

Our classroom is full of creativity, love, learning, and success. I want my students to know I believe in them and that they can do anything in this world. My students take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds to learn. My students learn best through hands-on lessons and they love using technology. We use flexible seating in our classroom, meaning my students have a choice and a voice in their learning each and every single day!

My Project

A teaching easel will give me a place to create and refer back to our class created anchor charts as we learn new literacy and math concepts. These charts will be displayed in the classroom for students to refer back to when needed.

It will be a collaborative piece for teachers and students to share an interactive and creative learning experience.

This easel is perfect for my students. The height can be adjusted to fit the needs of the students. Along with being involved in making anchor charts, students can interact with the easel by moving magnets, drawing on it, and using it to practice writing letters and numbers.

I will be able to use this easel to display literacy and math in a visual way. It will allow me a place to work on a whiteboard or with magnetic materials when teaching lessons to students who are learning to read and write. A teaching easel will provide a space for students to manipulate with magnetic letters to practice making and spelling words.
