I teach 1st grade in a beautiful rural school. My students are all very eager to learn and I love being able to enhance their educational experience with plenty of hands on manipulatives. My students are young, therefore they learn best when they are allowed the opportunity to have exploration and movement in a classroom. Their enthusiasm is electric, so I try to make their school day as fun and engaging as I possibly can so they will have very fond memories of school.
With the funding of this easel, my students will enthusiastically work on their writing center. Writing and reading are important to develop at this age. This will allow them to be able to move about the classroom, and participate with their peers in engaging writing practice that will enrich their educational experience. Writing on the whiteboard helps the students practice their handwriting, spelling, and sentence writing. They stay engaged with their lessons, which helps them to learn and retain what they have learned. I believe in promoting reading and writing at an early age, so there will be a lifetime love for reading.
