Ponca City  Public Schools-
The Oklahoma State Department of Education offered a grant opportunity for Oklahoma teachers.
Elise Foss, the second-grade teacher at Liberty Elementary, applied for digital writing tablets for her classroom on Donors Choose. The grant was then chosen to be fully funded by the Oklahoma State Department of Education for the classroom.
“I wanted to have Boogie Boards for my classroom,” said Foss. “Boogie Boards will be a wonderful supplemental resource in my classroom because it will allow students to practice skills with new and upcoming technology, which will help them in our ever-evolving technological world.”
“This resource will also help save paper by allowing students to practice skills multiple times without having to continue to use multiple pieces of paper. Students can use these boards to help engage them in every subject that is taught in my second-grade classroom,” said Foss. “We can work on phonics skills, writing, math fact practice and so much more.”
