Ms. Johnson from Dallas TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us! We're Drying Out!

Help me give my students dry erase markers to use as a part of their daily math review and some Clorox wipes because I sometimes let them write on their desks to make learning fun!

My Students

In my opinion, I have the best students in Dallas

ISD.

Although we're a Title I school, my students have competed in district-wide math competitions and have placed 1st, 8th, and 10th. Since we have 240 elementary schools, I think they've done an outstanding job. They're very intelligent and inquisitive thinkers. I've had them for two years now because I taught them in 3rd grade. Teaching them again in 4th grade is very rewarding because I can see how much they've grown and it gives me a chance to help them develop even more.

My Project

Dry erase markers are an alternative to just using paper and pencil and they help the environment because we don't have to use as much paper. In my classroom dry erase markers are a fun way to respond to questions I ask. When I allow them to write on their desks they become more interested in learning and start to see school in a fun way. It's important that our classroom environment stays clean so we use the wipes to clean our desks once we've finished. We also use them to wipe our desks down after we've done our science experiments.
