I teach 44-48 students math and science in the fifth grade. Many of the children are unable to purchase the supplies and it gets very expensive to have to keep replenishing them. My kids are sweet and so much want to succeed. They are truly wonderful children. Many of them are on free and reduced price lunch and their parents work multiple jobs. They are always in school and want to gain so much knowledge. Love these smart little kids!
The white boards and markers will help the students learn with greater ease by doing more and more examples on their white boards. The number line white boards will be very helpful when comparing decimals and fractions. The students would rather do the problems on the white boards than regular paper. We do area models for multiplication and the boards come in handy. We are always running low on markers because they love using them. We use them for exit questions so I can quickly see who has gotten the concept. They really are handy and well loved by the children.
