Ms. Ross from Dallas TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help My Gladiators Battle Reading Obstacles As a Team!

My students need flexible seating for our small group station that can serve as a safe space. The horsehoe table and chairs would really benefit us because they could practice reading in a distraction free area.

My Students

My students have a lot of heart and are always open to new perspectives when we have classroom discussions. They have an enthusiasm for reading and a healthy sense of competition when they work in teams and small groups. They are great about encouraging one another and embodying brotherhood.

I plan to continue to foster those qualities as the school year unfolds with cool team projects and student-led discussions.

They are even harder workers when we get to have brain breaks and activities where they can move and learn at the same time. Musical chairs with their favorite artists is a class favorite as a method for me selecting someone to answer a question. Working with them is truly a pleasure.

My Project

I’m hoping to provide my students with a reading/writing small group station. At the horseshoe table, students can sit together as a team and we can all face each other as I model read. By donating to this project, my students with reading difficulties can build their confidence with reading aloud because they’ll have a space to practice. Reading aloud in groups builds fluency and that’s what this furniture would be used for- fluency reading practice. The scholars enjoy being able to practice in smaller, homogeneous groups and when I can listen to their reading while sitting with them.
