My students are fun, sweet, and intelligent kids who enjoy learning! They walk into our classroom every morning curious as to what we will be doing that day. They are interested in learning all kinds of different things about all kinds of different topics from the past and the present. They don't all learn the same way but they all benefit from me being able to write on a nice, big, clean white board at the front of the room so they can see and hear what I am saying at the same time.
Right now we are using a shower board as a white board in our classroom for both the students and the teacher to write on and read from. It has been an effective alternative, but it is old and stained with lots of scratches and missing sections, which makes it hard to read and write on. Not only can a "real" whiteboard be used over and over without being stained, but students can also use it with magnetic manipulatives for math and reading practice. A new whiteboard will benefit students on a daily basis for years to come across the curriculum. It is time to throw out the old and bring in a new white board!
