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

Classroom Organization is Key!

My students need organizational drawers for their tables! In kindergarten they are just learning these skills and since they sit at tables and have a small classroom, we have limited areas to place their items.

My Students

My students are entering their first year of school! Since the state has taken away pre-k funding, most of these students are coming in without prior education. That's exciting and scary at the same time for these little ones. We want to make sure their day is filled with educational activities and have plenty of resources. There is nothing more exciting than to see happy smiles on these little ones faces as they face being away from their normal routines. I want to provide a peaceful and organized environment for them to learn in! My biggest goal is to get all my students reading but I need help getting my early reader library going! I want to send them off with a special book to carry throughout their school years! Please help me fund this!

My Project

Students will be able to put their daily folders, learning text books, student readers, crayons, scissors and miscellaneous daily tools in an organized area at their tables. These storage carts will be the best way to keep all their school tools in once area and easy to get to. Students are learning organizational skills as their first year in school and without the resources, it's hard to do this.

Keeping our classroom organized makes transitions smoother and quicker for more learning.

That is the reason we are in school so anything to max out the degree of learning is key and ideal. Please help keep my kinders organized so we get the maximum benefits of learning daily.
