Educator's Reviews

Within my classroom, a pivotal piece of furniture is my easel. I often utilize both sides during a lesson. An example is when I work with poems - the pre-written chart paper poem is on one side and, with a simple rotation, the class can brainstorm explanations of words they do not understand. Also, the bins at the bottom allow for a quick hand out of materials necessary for problem solving during a math lesson. In a self-contained special education setting, the ability to move my focal learning display with as little disruption is imperative. 

My easel allows for students to interact with ease and is set at a height that the varying sizes of my students can all use it (I teach K-2 students).

I would also like to thank you and Copernicus educational products for recognizing the importance of sustainability and environmental awareness.

My Royal Reading and Writing center has been a staple in my classroom since my first day 12 years ago.  It has moved buildings and classrooms and still looks brand new!  It holds more than I could have imagined and has stood the test of time. It’s an investment that will last throughout your career. Don’t wait!  You need it!
