Ms. Parkin from Long Beach CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

Help me give my students flexible seating options. Many students cannot see the board from their seat so these lap desks will support them while they work. Folders will help organize all of our units for the year!

My Students

As a Special Education Teacher going back to school in these unprecedented times, it is my goal to provide and utilize individual school supplies for my 4th/5th grade students. In the midst of a pandemic, the socioeconomic disparities increase even more for our young learners, and it is imperative to provide resources as they return to the classroom.

My Project

Please help my students in my Special Education classroom with flexible seating options and supplies to organize our units for the year. Allowing for my students to access content with a comfy lap desk allows them to be closer to the board and engaged in their learning. It will also help them to write and work with the whole class. The folders will allow us to have unit organization for the whole year and will make the daily flow of class run smoothly with supplies prepped and ready to go!
