Ms. Baker from Hyattsville MD is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books on Display

My students need a book display in our classroom's Reading Center to create more interest in books. This item will make the books highly visible and allow the students to access them easily.

My Students

My Kindergarten students come from a variety of non-English backgrounds. Our school consists of mostly English language learners and 95% of our students are either free or reduced lunch.

The students have limited technology experiences and educational resources at their homes.

I am always amazed at the excitement for learning they bring each morning when entering the classroom. Their parents are supportive, but many are unsure of how to assist their children at home with learning. Our school offers many programs to assist them, but we need more supplies to encourage their academic growth.

My Project

Our classroom needs a book display in our Reading Center to allow our Kindergarten students to easily view the books available to them. I have numerous books on different subjects, but the students don't get to see all that is offered because we only have crates and buckets to store them. Despite what we learn in life, I find that most Kindergarten students do choose a book by it's cover.

A book display would allow students to view the covers of books and create more interest in reading and choosing different titles.

Your support will also give us a better storage option that will stimulate reading in our class.
