Mrs. Seibert from Spokane WA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Brilliant Readers Need Book Bags

My Students

My young students are at a pivotal point in their education. They are becoming readers, real readers! They can work with numbers in a way they never thought possible. All the way up to 1,000! Their minds are growing and they can't get enough of the learning they experience every day.

For my students, school is a safe haven - a place where they come to learn, grow, explore, make friends, be respected, and feel loved.

My job is to provide them with the very best education possible. It can be hard to provide my students with the type of experiences other schools are able to provide due to lack of funding and parent involvement.

I refuse to let hurdles get in the way of my students' achievement and growth. I will do whatever I can to provide them with every possible opportunity and that's why I am signed up with DonorsChoose.org!

My Project

Students need a sturdy place to keep the independent reading books that they choose from our classroom library and get from reading groups. The book bags students are currently using are hard for young students to open and close and are in poor condition.

Students love having their own special spot to keep their treasured books, bookmarks, and other reading supplies.

Students take pride in choosing books from our classroom library and putting them in their personal book bags. With these quality book bags designed to be used by kids, students will be able to easily find their books and keep them in great condition.
