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

Increasing Students' Success Through Engaging Materials and Flexible Seating!

Help me give my students the tools they need to be successful every day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My second graders are a great bunch of learners that come to school ready to learn every day!

Our school English learners come from low-income housing and they lack of the necessary supplies to be successful.

They literally have to 'catch up' two to three years of English acquisition.

As a teacher, I have to come up with materials that make learning fun. They enjoy having hands-on activities printed in bright card stock. The bright colors capture their attention and they get to learn each English lesson thoroughly. They are also in need of mechanical pencils, regular pencils, and erasers.

The special tall table is for students to use when they need to stretch out and work on a standing position.

As a committed teacher, I feel it's necessary to show all our students that we care about them; and that we want to make learning as pleasant and successful as possible.

Thank you all in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity towards all my students.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Yetts

My Project

If my project is funded, all my students will be 100% engaged. They will be able to have their 'own' supplies such as mechanical pencils, regular pencils, erasers. They will also be ready to learn with the use of their English activities printed on the nice bright-colored card stock. Also the tall desk will be available for their use every time they need a break from traditional seating.

By donating to this project, you will bring color and inspiration to learning.

They will not only take ownership of their own learning but they will be able to have a collection of all their nice colored activities in their journals. They will be able to revisit them and to keep them for years to come.
