Mrs. Rowland from Aurora IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bookworms Need Comfy Seating

My students need flexible seating options for our classroom. They are asking for a reading flex-space classroom storage bench and flex-space comfy floor seats.

My Students

My students are eager to learn this school year. They are a diverse group of learners. English is their second language and they are excited to develop their language skills this year. New experiences make their day at school engaging and meaningful.

My students crave opportunities to learn new things.

This year is going to open many doors for them and create meaningful learning experiences. They are excited to be in fourth grade.

I'm looking forward to a great year together!

My Project

My students love to read. These flexible seating options will help them stay engaged while reading a good book. The flexible seating storage bench will provide additional storage for our classroom library and be a comfy place to read.

Students can get lost in a good book when they are more comfortable.

The floor seats will give them an alternative place to read. This helps them stay focused. Sitting in a student desk all day can be difficult for many students. Flexible seating options help students to be successful all day long in the classroom environment. Help us have a great school year!
