Mr. DeVore from Valencia CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Art, Math, and Writing Tools

My students need some great new art supplies. We use white charcoal pencils and black felt tip pens for a variety of math, art, and writing assignments. The white charcoal pencils look wonderful against black paper!

My Students

I have a wonderful 4th-grade class where my students show a love for learning. They have a natural curiosity and seem to enjoy school every day. The class works together well and I always have a good amount of students who help each other.

Happy, caring, respectful, helpful, trusting, curious, are a few words that I use to describe my class.

I can say so many things about my students as individuals, but as a class, I am so impressed with their ability to be there for each other.

My Project

We are constantly using a variety of pens and pencils in our daily activities. My students use black felt tip pens to trace over the majority of their writing. We use charcoal pencils to write on dark colored construction paper. We use these for art, math, reading, and science.

My students are excited to start using some nice erasable pens, non-dried up felt tip pens, and full-sized white charcoal.

We have been struggling with our 2-inch charcoal and old felt tips. The best part of the Frixion erasable pens is how well they erase and don't remove any paper, they erase by heat and friction.
