Mrs. Phu from Sherman Oaks CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

5, 6, 7, 8..... Let's Dance!

Help me give my students the equity needed to work with individual team building & choreography. Teams will select/produce one dance genre to be displayed/performed at the end of the semester. Speakers will be used daily by them.

My Students

What I love about my students is that the fact that even on my worst of days my students can cheer me up instantly, even with a language barrier. One student said just the other day, "Ms., you are my favorite teacher." That made my day.

My students work their hardest and is always enthusiastic in learning new dance techniques and skills.

They always strive for the absolute best. They put their hearts into achieving their goals of winning at local and out-of-state competitions and going everything possible to achieve them. That's all I can ask for.

It's the greatest feeling to see a student improve from last year's dance techniques, work habits, cooperation, dedication, responsibility, hard work, loyalty and goal orientation.

My Project

My students love to dance. I only have one speaker for the class. In class the speaker is used to help me choregraph/teach routines to my students. Many times, I would break my students up into teams and have them rehearse the dance combinations. Since I only have one speaker each teams have to wait for their turn. Time is wasted when my students wait for their turn to use the speaker.

My students will be able to do team and independent work without feeling limited due to not having the necessary equipment for their projects.

The speakers will give all students a chance to play/choregraph/rehearse in class without wasting precious time. This will enhance the feeling of accomplishment when their works are done and ready for performances.
