Why We Designed This

Our bamboo easels are a more sustainable choice than metal models because they have a smaller carbon footprint. Bamboo is a renewable resource that grows quickly and sequesters carbon, unlike steel which produces carbon. For every bamboo product purchased, Copernicus will make a donation to conserve natural panda habitat through the World Wildlife Fund.

This easel has a natural aesthetic better suited for neutral and early childhood environments. With multiple activity-based features, the Early Learning Station is perfect for preschool to grade one classes. The station provides teachers with quick set-up and the ability to change lessons when needed.  This easel has a two whiteboards, one lined for students to practice their printing and it folds away for easy storage.

Educator's Reviews

We use the easel everyday!  It has changed my teaching and the kids use it as a resource throughout the day. I LOVE the whiteboard side that has handwriting lines. We start the day every morning writing our schedule down for the day. I couldn’t believe how much they referred to the schedule throughout the day. It’s such a little thing but they really like it and remind me if I forget to do it. 

Also, we use one of the red tubs to house our marker boxes so it’s allowed them to be more independent when needing to use markers. It’s also useful to have the markers stored in the easel for whenever we need to make a chart or diagram. In the other tub I store my themed unit read alouds for easy access. I honestly don’t know how I taught without this easel!! Next year I plan to use it as a poetry center where students read a poem on a poster and use sentence strips to build the poem in a pocket chart. 

The only thing I would like to add is more storage for things like sentence strips or an additional shelf that ran in the middle of the easel.

I am over the moon about the Bamboo Early Learning Station! It is PERFECT for early childhood classrooms, and I absolutely love that it is made from a sustainable, renewable resource, has a magnetic felt board for storytelling, and a lined whiteboard for writing. If you’re in the market for a new easel, this is it!

Out of all the Copernicus products that we have used, THIS is our all-time fav!!!!! The little learners LOVE it as they no longer need to stand on their tippy toes to reach the top of our morning message. One kindergarten student said, “It’s like someone made this just for our size”. The Educators love it as it's a compact size and fits in many different areas for different purposes in our classroom. The printing lines on one side and the magnetic boards are both a huge bonus. The 2 bins on the bottom have the perfect amount of storage space. This product is highly recommended for any Early Learning environment, by Kindergarten students and Educators.

I couldn’t resist the beautiful natural colors of this easel, and I highly recommend it to any teacher who is looking to create a calm classroom environment. I’ve had my Bamboo Teaching Easel for three years, and it’s amazing durability keeps it looking new, year after year. This easel is easy to wheel around my third grade classroom where I use it to create anchor charts during mini lessons and as a whiteboard at our back table during small group instruction.
