Mrs. Golding from Virginia Beach VA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands on Learning!

My students need the Kleenslate dry erase boards to facilitate hands on learning and to complete quick formative assessments. They also need the Rust-Oleum dry erase paint to transform my small group table!

My Students

Our classroom is a vibrant community filled with third-grade learners of all backgrounds and strengths! While we are located in a thriving tourist area filled with multiple luxuries, many of our students do not have access to basic necessities, which means school is often the best place for them to find security, stability, love, engagement, and education! It is a known fact that collaborative spaces foster more meaningful learning experiences.

Since funding is scarce in regards to school furniture, I will transform my traditional wood grain table-top that I use for small group instruction into dry erase tables using the paint requested.

I give the handheld dry erase boards to each individual student so they have always have a space to work out their problems and I have a tool for quick formative assessments throughout the learning day! Finally the stools will provide flexible seating around the room for my students to move easily around the room.

With your generous donation, you will ultimately be transforming the learning environment indefinitely. The best part? Once complete, this project will impact students in my classroom year after year!

My Project

These items will greatly benefit my students not only this school year, but for years to come. The dry erase paint will transform my small group instruction. No more wasting paper and time finding something to write on; now we can write directly on the table and facilitate a hands on, collaborative environment. Students will be able to work with one other and shares ideas easier than before. The Kleenslate dry erase boards will allow for quick formative assessments throughout the day as well as providing a space for students to show off their learning. Finally the stools allow my students the freedom to work around the room and find a place that encourages success. Flexible seating allows students to have choice in their learning environment, which is something I am very passionate about.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
