Teacher Miller from Irwin PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chair Back Buddies

My students need these seat sacks in order to keep their collaborative learning tables free of clutter which will in turn allow for more large group learning opportunities.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and they each possess a positive attitude toward learning. While all of our students have different abilities, I strive to meet their individual needs through my flexible grouping and differentiated instruction.

Everyone loves the idea of cooperative learning - think of kids working productively and excitedly in groups, everyone getting along and enthusiastically helping one another learn.

As a 4th grade teacher, I find it valuable to give the students opportunities to demonstrate their own individual strengths. When combined with their peers' strengths, we can create a unique learning opportunity!

My Project

By providing students with Seat Sacks, they will be able to store all necessary materials in the pockets without anything being on their collaborative learning tables. Cooperative learning is key to any child's success so by having clutter-free tables, they can expand their academic horizons. It allows them to move more freely in groups while still staying organized.

Seat Sacks will allow children to stay organized and have materials within their reach while still being able to work with their peers at large tables!

Organization and communication are key components to a child's future, with this item we are leading them on the right path!
