Ms. Marquez from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Effective Listeners Love to Read

My students need floor seat chairs for reading to self-time. They love to listen to read aloud stories and the Califone earbuds would make their reading experience an unforgettable one.

My Students

My group of Third graders is extremely motivated and culturally aware of their surroundings. They enjoy read aloud during the whole group and they love to participate. They make connections with the stories and add their twist to the end as they predict a different ending to stories. Their sense of adventure and passion for reading is simply admirable. Reading has enabled them to visualize the stories and be able to integrate their background knowledge. They especially enjoy listening to stories that they can relate to.

My Project

I am requesting Califone Earbuds and floor seats for flexible seating which are great resources for my third graders to have access to during the school day. The main reason why I chose this project is mainly that my students enjoy listening to stories and I want them to have comfortable seating and earbuds to be able to listen to the stories they enjoy the most.

The products such as the Californe Earbuds and the Flex seats will be used during reading to self.

Students will take turns using the flex seating but each child will have a Californe Earbud to use during school or at home for listening to audio books online.
