Mrs. Lopez from Laredo TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Place for Everything, and Everything in Its Place

My students need a storage unit for their manipulatives. We do not have one so all of our bins are piled up on the shelves so students can not access it without teacher assistance.

My Students

I teacher PK-4 (Pre-Kinder for 4 year olds). I have a class of 24 students coming from low-income background (Title I). Our school is made up by around 90% Hispanic population so most students are bilingual. My kids are super heroes everyday because for many of them it is their first time away from mom and are being brave little boys and girls coming to school with great enthusiasm ready to learn. Aside from all the obstacles these kids are coming into the classroom with, we are a high performing school.

My Project

Our classroom was opened up this school year and did not have much furniture. We have our manipulatives stored in bins but they are piled up on top of each other. Every time students want to use something they have to wait for a teacher to help get it for them.

We have a place for everything, but they cannot put everything back in its place.

My students are learning to be independent and to direct their own learning. Their imaginations are limited only to what they have on hand. They could be using so many things but are in danger of having things fall on them if they try to reach for it. The storage unit I want has room for 20 bins to store all of our manipulatives in. We already have our stuff in bins but we need the storage unit so that all those things can be readily accessible to the students. Having materials at hand will reduce prep time and allow students to get right to work, and give me more time to get right to work with my small groups.
