My Students

My school has about 500 students. In fourth grade, we have eight sections. In my classroom, I have 21 students. I teach grammar and spelling. My students are really into making books.

We need a stapler for them to assemble their own books.

They love taking lined paper and stacking it together to write fictional stories.

My students have their own small sharpeners. They always break, get jammed and don't work. We need a quiet, heavy duty sharpener for them to use in the classroom. I choose the quiet one so it won't distract other students learning in my classroom.

My Project

I am asking for an electric pencil sharpener and stapler. My students need a heavy-duty electric pencil sharpener designed specifically for classrooms. The one I chose has durable construction and quiet electric motor provides reliable power with minimal disruption.

My students will use this every day for independent writing, taking tests, writing books and much more.

They will also be able to adjust it for colored pencils or larger pencils.

Another item my students need is a stapler. The one I choose staples up to 45 sheets which will be perfect for my fourth graders when they make books. It will help me be more efficient in the classroom.
