Ms. Bonnell from Middletown NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Comfortable Place to Sit

My students need a rug to sit on during our morning routine and for whole group lessons. We use the markers daily and the baskets are to organize their leveled readers.

My Students

My students are an active group of 5 and 6 year olds. They are very loving, giving hugs to me and their other teachers throughout the day. They enjoy our routine and are quick to point out if anything is out of order.

As they prepare to enter first grade, maintaining focus is becoming more important.

It is crunch time. It is incredible the amount of growth, both physically and academically, seen in kindergarten by year's end. As a team, we try our best to make sure this growth is enough to meet grade level expectations.

My Project

We had pipes burst earlier in the year and most of the foam mats I bought had to be discarded. The tile floor, with a concrete subfloor, is hard and cold.

This rug will not only cushion their bottoms but also define their personal space within each square.

The students use the dry erase markers daily here in school and at home. The finer point helps in following the arrows when practicing their names and staying within the lines. They are also used to practice high-frequency words in the "Read, Build, Write" center.

I have 11 reading groups and some of the baskets I have now are too small for the size of the books.

The velcro straps keep the desks together as a group.
