Ms. Jessica from Shannon NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Comfy and Cozy to Learn

Help me give my students a place to go where they can be comfortable while learning. The cushions will allow them to get out of their hard chairs and onto the rug where they stretch out to work.

My Students

I work at R-R Elementary. We are located in a very low-income area with over 60% of our students living at or below the poverty level. I use my classroom as an escape for kids to come in and feel comfortable. In return, my students work hard for me and I would love to be able to give them something nice in return. If we put love and effort into our students they will go above and beyond for us.

My Project

I use my classroom as somewhere my students can go to feel comfortable and forget about what may be going on in their home lives, even if only for a short time. They come into my classroom and I have areas for them to sit other than their desks, this alone makes them excited. They then get a chance to do their classwork and learn in a way they may have never been able to do before.

My classroom takes normal everyday learning in the classroom and turns it into something new and exciting.

My students love to come in and sit on the floor, under their desks, and sometimes even under my desk to get their work done. I allow them to sit where ever they are comfortable.

This project will allow me to give more options for my students to use in my classroom. This will in return give me better results in their learning and even in their confidence of being able to do their best.
