Help me give my students dry erase boards and markers so they can share ideas, write down their thoughts and do short creative projects together.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
When I first started teaching in this district, I discovered that children didn't have the excitement I hoped they would have for music. The district is very low income and there is no budget for me to buy any materials for the class. I introduced our students to the Music-K-8 magazine series and they fell in love with the silly catchy songs, that also brought incredible teachable moments to our classroom.
Our students have learned so much and now need ways to write their musical thoughts and ideas.
Our students love music and I would love to expand their fluency by giving them access to resources to be able to use their growing knowledge.
Having white boards in our classroom is going to allow students to share their thoughts and ideas with other students and also with the teacher. Students will be able to do paperless assignments, and check ins for assessment. Students will be able to practice writing notes, and short musical examples, vocabulary words and illustrate small ideas.
Having white boards in our classroom will allow students to meet multiple standards at once including cross-curricular standards.
Not only will the teacher be able to use them to assess understanding; but students will be able to use them to continue learning about and manipulating musical ideas more concretely.
