Mrs. Elliott from Gresham OR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating an Interactive Reading Classroom!

My students need headphones for our listening center as well as 3 large bean bag chairs to sit in at the reading station.

Teaching 32 fifth grade students creates a challenging environment for both students and the teacher.

I am starting a new reading program in our classroom and we do not have the necessary supplies. Since I teach in a high poverty school, supplies and money for classrooms is scarce.

The reading program requires stations to be set up and we need comfortable chairs (bean bags) for students to sit in and a listening center for books on tape. In order to use books on tape, we need a set of headphones. I am trying to make our sterile classroom more inviting and comfortable for students to learn and grow in.

Your help will ensure that my students will have a comfortable place for them to grow and learn everyday.
