Ms. Kazakoff-Eigen from Newton MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can Do it Myself!

My students need shelving for materials in our classroom. These shelves will enable students to access materials independently, which they need very much! With clear cubbies we can label each material to help students learn vocabulary.

My Students

Our students are English Language Learners. They come to us from many countries and life situations. Our students may be learning English as a new language, or they are intermediate or advanced students who are learning more nuanced English.

ELL students need our classroom to be a safe, calm room where they can learn English, and take a break from the constant culture shock and language overload they sometimes experience when they are new.

We work hard to service over 85 students at varying language levels, and we are hoping to create a space for them to thrive and flourish.

My Project

When our students are new, they spend their first few weeks at school learning "school vocabulary". With the addition of these shelves, students will be able to access classroom materials independently in our too-small classroom!

"I can do it myself," is a common refrain for students learning English.

We are excited that this project will allow students to learn the names of different school supplies more organically and quickly.

When students can access materials independently, it gives them a feeling of autonomy they often miss from their previous schools. The feeling of being new in a school is not as positive as we wish it were for many children. I am looking forward to giving students an opportunity to practice autonomy while learning language and routines.
