My wonderful kindergartners are between the ages of 5 and 7. For many of them, this is the first time they have entered a classroom, picked up a book, or explored music, art, and the sciences. They come to school with smiles on their faces and an eagerness to learn, but they also come from very different backgrounds.
Many of my students live in poverty, many are learning English as a second language, and many are immigrants and refugees from other countries.
Even so, my students come to school willing to take chances and grow while teaching their teacher a thing or two about how to better meet the needs of her students. They also show her how to view each day with open eyes and an open mind.
The whiteboard is a center point in most classrooms. It is used daily by both teachers and students. This whiteboard would be used for daily instruction in all content areas as well as used in small group instruction. Each small group requires a slightly different version of a lesson, this whiteboard allows me to teach one group and when done erase and have the board available for the next group. The whiteboard will help students to brainstorm ideas, allow for collaboration between students, and promote problem-solving.
With a donation to this project, you will be giving my students the materials they need to succeed.
This whiteboard will allow students a focal point for referring back to when completing an assignment. It will also allow students the opportunity to come together and collaborate on a project where they can share their ideas and problem solve together!
