Mrs. Beauchemin from West Hills CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cozy Up With a Good Book!

My students need a more kid-friendly listening center with a wider variety of stories, easy to use headphones, and soft seats.

My Students

My students are eager, inquisitive, and energetic learners who enjoy reading in our classroom library, listening to stories, making puzzles, and using their imagination and creativity at a free-choice center. They love singing, dancing, and playing outside.

My students are kind, helpful, and love learning!

They strive to do their best in class and on the yard to earn 10 or more points. They love earning stickers for participating in class discussions and being kind to others. This classroom is a great place!

My Project

The items I am asking for would really enhance our classroom library and listening center.

The wireless headphones would make it so much easier and more kid-friendly to listen to a story without having to untangle a mess of cords.

It's never fun to try and listen to a story when your headset is tangled up with your neighbor's headset! Plus all the group sets of books would allow each student to have their own copy to fully engage themselves in the story. Five students struggling to share a book doesn't make for a great experience at the listening center!

Lastly, the cozy cushion seats...who wouldn't want to read a book on a soft squishy cushion!?
