Ms. Unger from Saint Louis MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Books Everywhere!

My students need reading materials, especially book bins to help keep our library organized and up to date with new books.

My Students

My students come to school ready to learn every day! They are hardworking and excited to succeed. My school is located in the city of St. Louis and serves a large population of low-income families. Many of my students are in need of quality supplies to be used at school and home.

My students are curious and constantly soaking up knowledge.

They love to read and write. I am always trying to find new ways to introduce new literature to them!

My Project

I have selected items that will help increase our literacy environment. Clip boards, dry erase boards and markers, will all be used to increase whole class instruction as well as individualized work during small groups. The dry erase boards will be used in small reading groups to help the students practice word solving skills and decoding skills. The dry erase boards will also be used in whole group instruction for activities such as math practice problems. The clip boards will be used to make our learning mobile. Sitting at a desk all day can be boring! I want my students to be able to take their work on the go around the room. They will be used in scavenger hunts and partner work. My goal for my students is to be able to be more hands-on in their learning and take more ownership in their work.

Our classroom library is in desperate need of a face lift!

We have been using books bins left over from the teacher before and they have seen better days! I chose new sets of book bins to help organize our library, so my students have an easier time choosing books. These bins will store all of our books and will be labeled by level or genre, to help the students find the "just right book." Reading books at the appropriate level can help students improve their comprehension and can help increase their reading skills.
