Ms. Elliott from Garland TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read, Write, Respond

My music students need individual dry erase boards, markers, and erasers so they can practice reading and writing music notation.

I teach music in a Title I school. My students are from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Many of my classes have 50-60 students.

My students work on their music reading and writing skills on a regular basis. I would like to let them create and share their own rhythms and melodies. Individual dry erase boards would be both practical and fun for the purpose. Individual boards will also be used for students to write their responses to demonstrate understanding.

I have 50 marker boards already. I just need a few more so that each student has one. I also need markers and erasers.

Creating their own rhythms and melodies helps students master skills much faster than typical drill activities do. Reading one another's music is more engaging than reading from the board. With your help, my students will be on the fast track to music literacy - and perhaps composition!
