Mrs. Lowry from Okeechobee FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Efficient Organizing

My students need a new rug! The rug I bought last year is falling apart at the edges. It would be awesome for the students to have a visual of where their space is.

My Students

The beautiful thing about teaching kindergarten is the amount of information they learn in a year. In all the grades I have taught, kindergarten is the grade where you see the most growth from the beginning of the year to the end. Some of the students come in not knowing how to write their name and leave reading, writing, adding and subtracting! This year my students worked hard and they all made their reading goals!

Besides teaching reading, writing, math, science, and socials studies, I teach them to be model citizens.

Not just for the year, but for always! I teach them how to communicate with each other in a respectful manner, how to be respectful of others and use their manners, and to be a problem solver on a daily basis! I love my students and they are the reason I go to school each day!

My Project

The sectioned rug will definitely make rug time more enjoyable for all of us when each student has an outlined area of "their personal space" when we meet. The writing center, magnetic folder bins and book holders will help me organize the materials for the week and display them in a way that will spark the students' interest.

The students will be able to practice beginning and ending sounds with the alphabet learning tubs and learn how to form letters correctly using the instant writing centers.

The magnetic strip pockets will be useful when practicing sequencing. The microphone will help students practice fluency in fun way!
