Ms. E. from Philadelphia PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Graders Need Seat Sacks!

My students need seat sacks to store their folders, books, and pencil cases! Our classroom would flow a lot easier for my scholars and I if they had everything they needed readily available!

My Students

I teach at a school located in the urban area of West Philadelphia. The school services about 700 students; 95% of them receive free/reduced lunch and breakfast. We as a school are dedicated to foster a love for learning and knowledge. Our goal is to prepare our scholars for success in high school, college... in life!

My students are a reflection of my passion, love, and dedication to teach, love, and nurture children.

They are thinkers, innovators, problem solvers, dreamers, and so much more. They teach and inspire me each day, even if they are not even aware! My goal is to provide my students with the tools and faith to believe in themselves and their own success. They are our future and I want to provide them with a great foundation for a successful future!

My Project

We have sooooo many great new learning materials and supplies, and no where to put them! We love our tables, but they do not hold our things like desks do. Daily routines and transitioning are a hassle and use so much of our valuable instructional time. Have seat sacks will make a world of change in our classroom. We would no longer need to carry heavy bins of books and supplies across the classroom. The learning experience in our classroom would be so much greater if my scholars had everything they needed readily available to them.
