Starting Over in 4th Grade

Help me give my students the supplies like dry erase boards and a pencil sharpener, two items they need to grow as learners.

My Students

I have only had a short time to get to know my students as I started the year in October. My students have the potential to do great things, they just need the support/guidance to get there. Many of my students do not have that love for learning and I hope to change that this year. I am excited to be their new teacher and help them see how much fun learning can be. The classroom was very bare when I started and I am in need of some basic supplies to help my students learn.

My Project

I am new to this classroom and am starting over since I was not left with much. Students do not currently have a working pencil sharpener in the classroom so I have to sharpener pencils in another room before school starts. It is not ideal and really causes frustration amongst my students when their pencil breaks. Also, students currently do not have whiteboards which means we do everything paper/pencil. I want to offer another way for students to quickly show me what they know without having to waste so much paper. These are just the emergency supplies that we currently need in the classroom to make learning fun.
