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.

The great thing about this easel is I can use it for any subject. So it doesn’t just have to be reading or writing, I’ve used it for math, I’ve used it for social studies, religion, for any subject. I like the interactive feature, it’s better than just using a chalkboard or a whiteboard that’s mounted to the wall. It’s more interactive and the kid’s concentration is held a lot longer than some other tools I’ve used before.

I find that the tubs stops are a really good idea. When you’re moving around in the classroom you don’t want things to fall out, or if the students are pulling things out of the bins themselves, it’s a safety feature that is important to have on a moveable cart.

The double sided whiteboard is a great feature on this cart because you can either use it on the cart itself or you can move it to another spot in the classroom. I’ve used it for writing and penmanship activities with the kids. There’s a nice option of having a lined side or having a blank side.

I use the Royal Reading Writing Center for small group activities as well for whole class activities. So the kids are used to using the magnetic part of the board and moving things around or writing. It could be something I use whole class or the kids can use in groups of two or three or four. They are used to moving it around and getting things they need out from the tubs.

Most manuals for this type of "furniture" come with bare bones instructions, and you're lucky if all the parts are included.  I was fascinated that Copernicus packages the parts by "Step" in the assembly process.  Furthermore, the fact that they include a full set of extra parts is crazy.

I’ve had the easel for so long I cannot even remember. Likely going on 8-10 years. It is still in great shape! It is so handy that the whiteboard/ magnetic board is on the same unit as the chart paper stand. Multipurpose for sure. My favourite aspect is the buckets that I can use to store my teaching supplies. Everything I need for the day is right at the carpet with me and the kids.

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!
