Ms. Emlaw from Henderson NV is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

You Got the Write Stuff!

Help me give my students "classroom staples." These tools will allow us to be mobile in our classroom while keeping focus on our learning. Having these whole group supplies will encourage interactive learning and foster organizational skills.

My Students

This is my second year teaching and I absolutely love fourth grade because the kids are developing life skills that take them the distance in education. Helping maintain focus in the classroom is every teachers challenge and this challenge has a solution.

Students currently work most of the day at desks with those uncomfortable chairs.

The classroom can be very busy at times with movement, groupings and problem-based learning. It is important to me that I create an inviting space for students to learn. Because I'm not able to sit still for long periods of time, I don't expect my students to. At several points of our day, I encourage they work in groups away from their desks around the room.

My students come to school to actively participate in their education. They are eager to please, hard-working, and appreciative. Limited restlessness and distractions by providing alternative seating helps redirect their energy back toward their education.

My Project

Our classroom is in need of supplies to allow students to stay engaged in their learning outside paper and pencil lessons. These tools are staples in many classrooms at my school, however, being a new teacher, I am often choosing to fund items higher on the priority list! (ie, classroom library, alternative seating, pencils, glue sticks, etc...)

No one likes to sit in the same seat for hours on end.

Lap desks allow students to take a break from their uncomfortable plastic chairs and find a place on the floor to stretch out and tune into classwork. My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
