Mrs. Butler from Neenah WI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Shelf is a Home For Many Resources- Help Us!

My students need more places to store supplies and materials. Because I am teaching multiage, I need more space for all different levels of books and curriculum. The classroom currently lacks appropriate furniture for kids!

My Students

I am excited to teach my first year of multiage students! Last year I taught kindergarten and I get to keep half of my kindergarten students and get half a class of kindergartners. The purpose of the multiage program is to teach to individual needs and student performance levels. The programs gives a child two years to develop skills and is self paced based on student needs! My students are absolutely awesome and continue to soak up every learning opportunity. The more resources I can have available at their finger tips the more success there will be!

My Project

My students thrive on organization and daily routine with set procedures. In order to make my classroom run smoothly and efficiently, shelves are ESSENTIAL! Because I need to expand my resources I need more space for more items like books, STEM supplies, and math manipulatives. Our current shelves are all either too low or too high for kids this age and we would love new ones! The new book shelves would be perfect height to hold our classroom library books and guided readers. The cube shelves and grey storage containers would be a great place to house math manipulative and student workshop centers. My students don't have much space to call their own so their own space and area to get curriculum items would help tremendously! This furniture would bring new life into the classroom that I dedicate so much time too and this would benefit many students at our school for years to come, I thank you for your consideration!
