Ms. A. from Kansas City MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to the Basics

My students need books that are on their level, a place to safely keep and store all the books, and a few pieces of furniture to give the space boundaries.

My Students

I have fallen in love with working at my low-income, high poverty district. All the students come from very diverse backgrounds. These students often experience many challenges in and out of the classroom. I hope to provide them with all the materials they need to be successful in the classroom.

Any donation to this classroom makes a LARGE impact!

As this is my first year teaching Kindergarten, my students will need some resources that we do not yet have in our room. I would love to provide quality products to enhance their environment. I appreciate and help you can give (and I know the kiddos will too!).

My Project

Back to the Basics: This will be my first year teaching Kindergarten! I am so excited, but I do not have the resources necessary to provide a great learning experience for the students.

This project is all about getting the basics of a Kindergarten room together to start off a great year!

We need leveled books. We need a place to store those new books. We also need a few odds and ends (pencil sharpener, alpha magnets, etc.). With donations/help, my students will be able to focus more on their learning because their environment will be so friendly and safe.
