Whiteboards Needed for Classroom Games Next Year!

My students need whiteboards, markers, and erasers to play vocabulary games that will make learning new words more fun.

My Students

To adapt to the Common Core's high standards for student literacy, students need to expand their vocabularies so that they can access high-level, rigorous texts. These whiteboards will help them do that.

I teach seventh grade English in an ambitious and successful middle school in a high poverty area.

With rigorous academic expectations, we regularly outperform our peer schools as well as city and state averages on state exams. Just this week, our school was a model for thirty principals and the district superintendent who visited to observe and replicate our practices. Our school is located in one of the poorest congressional districts in the country. Over 90% of the students at my school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. We have a great and constant need for resources. My students come from all over the world; we represent areas from the Dominican Republic to West Africa to Bangladesh.

My Project

"I need you to complete this analogy: whisper is to shout as annoy is to... what? Discuss with your team, and write your answer on your whiteboard." "I need you to work with your table to write down a sentence with a parenthetical phrase that you correctly punctuate with commas. Underline your parenthetical in red marker." Students need to build grammar and vocabulary skills to be successful readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. Embedding that learning in social, fun, competitive activities will increase student engagement and learning outcomes.

I want my students to look forward to coming to my class because they know that they will learn and they know that they will have fun.

These whiteboards will allow me to turn silent, individual activities on low-interest topics into team-oriented activities that students enjoy and learn.
