My students need 30 white boards to be able to work in math groups!
My students are in a full time ICT second grade classroom. Many of my students come from low-income families. Several are English language learners. There are a few that come from single-parent (or single-grandparent) households.
All of my students are unique individuals who are always eager to learn and be engaged in exciting activities.
My diverse 2nd graders come from a variety of backgrounds and have different needs and wants.
All of my students are eager to learn with open minds, ready to be filled with knowledge.
Our class has become their second family. They are very energetic and enjoy working with each other, love projects, and strive to do their best
All in all, they are a group of awesome kids!
White boards make learning fun! Students do best with hands on activities that make learning engaging and fun. In small group and whole class activities they can be used for spelling practice, finding math solutions, and so much more! They provide a means for quickly assessing if students have mastered a task or if they need further instruction.
White boards are easier to erase than conventional pencil on paper, making them more kid-friendly!
Learning can be frustrating for children and even holding the pencil can make the task more laborious. Markers glide easily on the white boards and mistakes can be easily erased. Erasing and reconfiguring their response helps students accept mistakes a little easier because white boards are more fun. I am trying to teach students that mistakes are ok, they are part of learning. It is easier to feel that way when you don't have to wear down the eraser of your pencil.
