Mrs. Ells Perry from Huntingtown MD is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help! We've Lost Our Desk Space!

My students need 5 mobile storage carts to organize table group supplies. This year, I do not have individual student desks, but group tables. These carts will replace the lost storage space of individual desks.

My Students

This is my fourth year teaching first grade after 12 years teaching 4th and 5th grade. I love how first graders are inquisitive and enthusiastic learners! Each day they come to school prepared to give 110%! Our classroom learning community values all diversity and celebrates each others' uniqueness.

Every child knows he/she is special and can explore their future career path in my classroom - the next great scientist, writer, engineer, or future entrepreneur's start might be right here in my classroom!

They are the future, so I hope to set them up for life long success!

My Project

This year, my classroom will have cooperative group tables for students to sit and learn at as opposed to individual desks. As a result, students will no longer have an individual space to store their learning materials.

Each table will need a rolling cart to organize these essential learning materials, otherwise,‚Äč we will have no place to put student journals, pencil boxes, manipulatives, scissors, books, markers, and other supplies!

Having supplies at the ready is so crucial to ensuring smooth classroom transitions and maximizing learning time. First graders are easily distracted and are learning key executive functioning skills. These carts will help keep everyone on task and organized, so students can focus on learning goals!
