White Boards for Little Writers!

My students need 40 double-sided white boards with dry erase markers so they can practice writing letters and words.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are so excited about learning our letters in kindergarten! However, we have no white boards to practice writing on! If we each have a dry erase board and marker to use, we will be able to practice writing our letters beautifully!

I teach two groups of kindergarten students each day-one in the morning, and one in the afternoon.

Each class is made up of about 40 students who live in a high-poverty urban area. Many of my students coming into kindergarten have never been to school before and are very excited about learning new things! Because of the large number of students in each group, we need lots of supplies to support their learning. These little learners have lots to explore in school and supporting their writing is a very important part of their kindergarten year.

My Project

If my students receive dry erase boards and markers, they will start their journey as writers in a fun and creative way! Each child will be able to bring a board and marker to our learning rug and practice writing their letters on the lines that one side of board provides. This gives them the chance to practice correct letter formation and it's a fun variation from simply writing on paper with a pencil. As the children become more confident writers, they will be able to use the boards in learning centers doing independent practice. As the year progresses, the students will be writing more than just letters. They will be writing words and sentences and will be on their way to being readers! It would wonderful to have these boards because they can be used by both the morning and afternoon classes each day, and will stay with the classroom each year. The impact of your donation will continue to make a difference with each passing year!

Donating to my project will make a huge difference in my students' lives.

These tools will make writing a part of their daily routine in kindergarten. As they grow as learners, the skills that they will take in using these supplies will help them to continue on as readers and writers. We need fun and engaging activities to help the students to love learning! Be a part of making that happen by donating to my project. The learning will continue year after year in Ms. B's classroom.
