Mrs. Walker from La Quinta CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fun in 4th Grade!

My students need everyday essentials such as scissors, rulers, dry erase boards, dice (for fun math games), and more. These are things I noticed I had to borrow from colleagues multiple times throughout last year.

My Students

Hi, there! I am a 4th grade teacher who just completed her first year of teaching! Throughout the school year, I established relationships with my students that I will remember forever. Now let me tell you about my students...

They are the sweetest kids with some of the kindest hearts!

I loved seeing their growth not only academically throughout the year but also emotionally. They learned how to problem solve and work together in teams. My students learned how to verbalize when they had a problem with someone so they could work better together. I remember one day when my students were working together and I was resolving a problem with the entire class, and a student said, "We are a family, Mrs. Walker!"

Although learning something new can be difficult, it is my goal that students gain confidence in themselves and continue to cultivate a love of learning. I loved seeing their faces light up when they learned something new or a new math concept finally clicked. I hope to inspire my students to be lifelong learners!

My Project

Throughout the school year, I noticed that I had to borrow classroom essentials such as glue, rulers, and scissors from my colleagues. Having these items on hand will allow my students to have the tools they need to complete projects! For example, the scissors, Elmer's glue, and Color Swell Washable Markers will allow students to create beautiful social studies art or thematic art related to what we are learning.

I love to incorporate hands-on activities such as art in my classroom, so rulers, markers, glue, and scissors are staple items to have in the classroom for my little creators!

One last thing is that I would love a Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone for my classroom when students are presenting in front of the class so their voices can be heard! I noticed that students gain confidence when their voices projected more!
