My students need to clearly view notes during my lesson, and this easel will allow us to occasionally hold class outside!
Some may say that teaching 8th graders is not for the faint of heart; I, however, must disagree! Yes, my students do show up each day looking to have fun with their friends. But the truth is, when middle school children walk into a comfortable and welcoming classroom and are greeted by a truly caring adult, they want to SHINE!
Each of my students has the potential to become an extraordinary adult who could make a positive difference in our world!
This is why I strive daily to bring out their very best. My job is to help them grow as much as possible in the areas of reading and writing in the time we have together. Some are just learning to love literature, while others are developing into analytical critics of information. A few are just now ready to fully understand sentence structure, while others strive to model essays after award-winning authors!
Despite each student's ability level when they enter my classroom in September, my goal is that they will leave as a strong, confident, and powerful English student in June. I hope you might want to help me accomplish this goal.
My writing mini-lessons are done "live" in front of the kids. Using an easel allows me to be close to my kids and still face them while writing notes. My current easel is 15 years old and has taken some serious wear-and-tear to the point that it no longer works properly. When it comes to maintaining engagement for middle school learners, this tool is one of my essentials!
The metal organizers will be used to house student composition books.
By keeping them upright, with the labeled spines facing out, students will quickly locate their books which will maximize our learning time together.
Perhaps the greatest fact about these materials is that they allow me to TAKE MY SHOW ON THE ROAD! Middle school kids love to move; writers often need to go to the story or find a place of inspiration. With composition books in hand, and my portable easel, there's nothing stopping us!
