Mrs. Bethany from Stafford VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Expand Our Classroom into the Garden

My students need picnic tables so we could have the option to work outside and eat our snacks on nice days. The tables will supplement the landscape rocks that are already out there.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My school is Title 1. It has a high concentration of ESL students. My first grade classroom has an ESL cluster. An ESL teacher coteaches with me for part of the day. I also have a group of 3 autism students that spend part of their day with us. We do a lot of partner/small group work to practice our English skills.

My classroom has a door that leads to a courtyard that can be used as an extension of our room.

My Project

We use the courtyard quite a bit when the weather is nice. Right now it only has landscape rocks to sit on so we are limited in what can be done outside. The tables would give us a work surface. We could actually do some lessons outside. Small groups could play games and work on projects outside.

Picnic tables would give us the ability to get outside on nice days even more!

Right now we are limited to going out there for our Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) time. We also read with our 3rd grade buddies out there but having tables would greatly expand our opportunities!
