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

My Students

The students that I will have this year in my 3rd grade classroom are energetic, curious, and fun loving students. They come to school every day and try their hardest.

My class will be a mix of 27 students that come from many different backgrounds from well off to struggling, focused and family oriented, and even broken homes.

I want to make sure that I can create a learning environment for my students that not only makes them feel safe, but also loved.

My Project

These materials that I am requesting will be used to continue to help my students create their best reading lives!

The clipboards will be a huge help during our lesson times.

As of right now my students are having to write on the carpet, which makes it hard for them to not only write and take notes but read their own handwriting!

The rest of the materials requested will be used to help us organized our new reading lives. The rainbow carts will be used so that students may keep their reading materials in their own drawer so that they know where all of their materials are at all times. The mini crates will be used to help us add and organize more books to our classroom library.
