Ms. Kleinow from Taylor MI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfortable Seating for Reading

Help me give my students comfortable child sized seating for reading great books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This is a Highscope GSRP preschool. This is my first year teaching preschool. I have a book area in my classroom that is lacking comfortable seating for my students to enjoy their books. I'm looking for any kind of child size couches or bean bag chairs. In our school we like to encourage the use of real every day materials to give children the sense of Independence. These seating items would make our classroom feel more like home to the children.

My Project

Donating to our GSRP preschool class will be a gift that the children will use every day all year long. When you curl up at home with a good book you are usually not on a cold tile floor. You are sitting comfortably on your couch. In our classroom, we have one tiny blue vinyl couch in our book area that has many rips and should be tossed out. I have 18 students and I think that there should be enough seating in this area for at least five students. Your kind donation will encourage more student to become interested in the literacy world.
