Mrs. Romano from Rockaway Park NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Independent and Organized Learners

Help me give my students materials that will help keep them organized and independent. The mailboxes, bookshelves and charging station will help with routines and the lap desks will allow for flexible seating and support on the rug.

My Students

I teach in an Integrated Kindergarten classroom with 25 sweet, bright and hilarious students. While some children may have come to our classroom reading, others are learning how to take turns or identify letters. Each child is learning to meet their own individual goals and have respect for where others are on their journeys. We promote independence and kindness and strive for a classroom culture where children help each other.

Choice is a big part of our classroom and we feel strongly that children who have control over how they learn are more invested in what they are learning.

Our students love to engage in play based learning, sensory and movement activities. We also love to hear stories, create books and think and work like scientists and mathematicians.

My Project

Young children thrive when routines are established. It helps them feel safe and secure and leads to independence and investment in their classroom. When students have a classroom setting that is organized and neat, they are better able to find and return materials on their own.

These materials will allow the students to independently navigate their classroom setting, taking responsibility for materials with confidence and pride.

Students will be able to use the mailboxes, charging station and bookshelves to find and return materials they are responsible for. The lap desks will help to keep their bodies organized and ready to learn.
