Mrs. Yates from Plainfield IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Bench of Two for Learning a Slew of Things!

Help me give my students new options for flexible seating. My students are excited to have a new option to use within the classroom. These benches will give the students a comfortable option to learn their best!

My Students

I work with third grade students in a Title One School. They each come from different backgrounds, but come together to make our superhero classroom superb! I couldn't ask for a better bunch of students to work with.

My students have a passion for learning, a drive to always learn more, and love for one another.

Third graders are a great group of students to work with. They can have lots of energy that can be fostered to have them do some brilliant things.

My Project

These benches will give my students another opportunity to pick a place in our classroom where they can learn their best! Research shows that when you are comfortable in your environment you are better able to learn. By having the choice to pick a seat that is comfortable for my students they are able to learn better. These benches have great function and will add four more spaces to sit in the classroom. The benches turn into a table top, so the students have a hard surface to write on when it is needed and can be turned back to a bench when they are wanting a more comfortable seat. Thank you for helping us get these benches into our classroom.
