Help me give my students a magnetic whiteboard for small group learning. Thanks.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I have 31 eager students in my classroom ready to learn. Besides whole class instruction, I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning opportunities to meet the need of each student. Students learning is like building blocks of knowledge. Some blocks have more weight than others. In all so, all blocks will work together to built a foundation of life long learning. I am very excited to help my students built the 4th grade block of learning.
During small group time, I always pull one group for differentiated teaching and learning. During this time, I work on concept with a few students close up.
A magnetic whiteboard is the key essential learning tool to give students an opportunity to see and learn up close, in a safe environment.
In a small group students are more likely to ask questions and participate in discussions. They can get immediate feedback, and I can assess informally.
At the moment I do not have a white board in my small group area. I use butcher paper, which works, but a whiteboard would make the difference. I wish I could use magnets for sentence frames and manipulate sentences agreements. While working in small groups students cannot sink into the background or get distracted in large settings, a small, tight knit team working towards the same problem.
A magnetic whiteboard would give all students the opportunity to learn in intimate environment of a small learning group.
