Mrs. Van Kirk from Prescott Valley AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Calling All SuperReaders!

My students need books from their literature anthology and the Winsome Solid Wood 4-Piece Storage 3-Tier Shelf to store the books!

My Students

My students are a group of sweet young people who are just beginning to learn the amazing things they are capable of doing. They come from various backgrounds and most of them qualify for free or reduced lunch but they don't let anything hold them back.

There is nothing better than the sound of a student's ah ha moment.

My students are constantly amazing themselves with the challenging concepts they are working on this year. With their perseverance, they are on their way to incredible things!

My Project

My students are so excited about reading right now that I want to keep the momentum going! I am requesting books that have excerpts in our literature anthologies. Students who get into the excerpts will be able to access the actual book in the classroom!

Getting 6th graders excited about reading is not easy, so when the spark happens, the books need to be available!

And with beautiful new books comes the need for beautiful new seating. The Winsome Shelving fits perfectly with the flexible seating in the classroom. The shelving will also help create a reading nook in the corner of the room. Imagine all the sparks you can help create by donating to this project!
