Ms. Green from Salamanca NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfortable Reading

My students need a kidney activity table to effectively engage in guided reading and the bean bag chairs are to be placed in my reading nook for our classroom library.

My Students

Kindergarten students are amazing to work with. Many come to school for the first time, but are eager to learn and believe they can do almost anything. I try to encourage that attitude by reading several growth mindset books a month and doing activities that challenge them.

As they apply this attitude they become wonderful problem solvers and the things they accomplish at such a young age are mind blowing.

I am inspired by my students everyday. They are the reason I continue to love teaching!

My Project

I will use the Kidney Activity table to engage my students during my guided reading centers. This table will allow me to monitor all my students at the same time while each still has their own space to work, but it doesn't take up a lot of classroom space.

The bean bag chairs will be placed in a reading nook that our maintenance man created in my classroom using my two file cabinets and my existing counter.

The nook is in my classroom library so the students will be able to grab a book, relax on a bean bag and get sucked it.
