Mrs. Griffin from Louisville KY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need VCI (Visually Cued Instruction) In Our Classroom!

My students need to have charts created, both by teacher and by students, and then displayed to help them remember the instruction that has taken place.

My Students

I have a very lively class of 25 second graders that love to explore things! Our school is located in Louisville, KY and is a Title I school. All students receive free breakfast and lunch. We also supply many of our students with Blessings in a Backpack food for the weekends.

My students are very visual learners and need to have things remain in front of them in order to be reminded of what we learned.

We use lots of songs and poems to help us remember things.

My Project

Many of my students are visual learners. They need to see something in order to understand it. However, they often need to refer back to it to remember it. Currently, we use a Panasonic Panel to do our whole group lessons and then it gets erased. It's also difficult to have students share their work on it as they worry more about how it shows up on the screen and drawing with their finger instead of the actual process.

With a chart stand, we could create anchor charts that we could then display in the room for students to refer back to.

These would be teacher and student created so they could look back at what we did in order to review or see it for the first time if they were absent. We also could use the magnetic portion to practice with our magnetic math manipulatives as a whole group. The side of the stand that is lined would provide good writing practice for students as we "share the pen" to create written pieces together.
