Mrs. Yanis from Jefferson City MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chairs for Future Bookworms!

My students need six stools for our guided reading table so that I can meet with larger groups comfortably. I also need two butterfly chair covers to replace my previously used cushions during our independent reading.

My Students

I am blessed to work with kids daily! When it comes to teaching you often have students with a variety of educational skills and needs. Knowing this I absolutely love how unique my students are! Every day offers new learning experiences and many moments of joyous laughter. My "kiddos" are very inquisitive and always eager to learn.

Students come to 3rd grade on different reading levels.

Some are in our target range of "grade level" and others may be one or two reading levels behind. My goal for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year is to reach our acquired district goal of having all students on grade level by the end of third grade.

My Project

All students deserve to be great readers! My goal is to meet with all my guided reading groups at the same table, which means that I need smaller seating to accommodate my larger groups.

Stools are smaller and require less space and in turn, allows six students to sit together during a lesson.

This would benefit both students and teacher during reading instruction. Sitting together at our guided reading table allows me to have all my materials on hand, and also forms a sense of community along with student collaboration.

We have worn out our butterfly chairs covers, and they desperately need to be replaced so that they can be used again during independent reading.
