Ms. Richardi from Chelsea MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School Necessities!

My students need a classroom rug, book bags (to access reading at home!), and other essentials for a great start to the 2018-2019 school year!

My Students

Our classroom is made up of curious, thoughtful and hardworking students. We begin every day by declaring our promises to each other: to be kind and fair to all, always try our hardest, and to appreciate what we have.

My students come from diverse backgrounds and have varying learning styles and abilities.

Despite the many challenges that they may face, these third graders come to school each and every day ready to persevere and embrace all opportunities to learn something new.

My Project

Last year, I submitted a project for Take Home Book Bags. The goal was for students to have access to appropriate books at home by borrowing their favorite titles and genres from my classroom library. This was a huge success, and the bags lasted us an entire school year! Now, I am asking for a new of set of Take Home Book Bags so next year's class can experience the same love for reading at home.

Additionally, we are in need of a classroom rug to create an additional workspace and meeting place for students.

This rug will provide students with a place to hold our Morning Meeting, engage in whole group lessons, or listen to a mentor text read aloud.

We also are in need of the little things: tissues for runny noses, hand sanitizer to ensure clean hands, and dry erase markers for math games and instruction.

Thank you so much for supporting our classroom, it truly makes a huge difference in our students' daily learning!
