Mrs. Stevens from Hampton VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

2nd Grade Sweethearts Need a Cozy Rug and Learning Materials!

My students need a rug for their reading corner! They also need a reliable pencil sharpener, a pencil pouch to hold their math toolkit, and dry erase boards and markers to actively participate in lessons.

My Students

My sweet second graders need a class that feels like home. Most of my students will qualify for free lunch and may have moved more than once before 2nd grade for one reason or another. I want to provide my students with their own materials and a welcoming environment in order to make our class feel like home and give them the consistency that they need. Our Title I school is located in an urban environment and many of our school families benefit from community donations, food pantries, and partner organization donations. My families are unable to provide a lot of the back to school supplies needed in order to have a fully functioning classroom. This project could get our classroom started!

My Project

My goal this year is to make my classroom feel like home for my students. I know that a rug will be used daily as a place to read with a friend, collaborate with a partner, and listen to others during class meeting.

A classroom rug is the perfect meeting place.

Flexible wobble cushions will help me reach my goal of creating a comfortable learning environment for each student.

My students would greatly benefit from their own dry erase board and marker in order to actively participate in lessons. I will be able to quickly assess understanding by clearly seeing their work. The pencil pouch will hold their math tools so that they are easily accessible when needed.
