Mr. K. from Milwaukee WI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Calm and Quiet Place to Escape With a Book

My students need comfortable seating and an organized space to enjoy silent reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students in my class are always going above and beyond to achieve their goals. When they set goals for themselves, they seek help from me or their classmates. My students are great at building and maintaining a classroom community throughout the year.

Some of the students have skills and abilities that they never knew they had.

Through different projects or other self-discovery, they are finding more out about themselves that can not be taught from a book or video.

My Project

With these materials, my students will be able to look for a book of interest through different organizational methods. I will utilize these bins to help organize my classroom library based on reading level and genre. With the help from the bins, students will be able to choose a genre of book or author which they enjoy. The seating (table and chair set) will be used to allow students to enjoy reading in comfort instead of sitting at their desks or on the floor.

A well-organized room will help students achieve their goals and become well-rounded learners.

The mailboxes will help keep student's organized.
