Mrs. Hartford from Iowa Falls IA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's Bin Awhile and Get Comfy

My students need easy access bins to see their great fit books, also we need some more comfy reading chairs to encourage building their stamina!

My Students

3rd graders are the best group of students (I might be a little biased here) - but seriously - they are eager to learn, creative, outgoing, honest, energetic, confident and most of them have made this cool transition of not only learning to read, but reading to learn.

As much as I love teaching them reading, writing, math, science and social studies (among so many other parts of the day)- making the connections and hopefully sparking that love of reading and learning with each one is where my heart is.

Living in rural Iowa, our classroom sizes vary from 18-23 kids each year. This next year's class I will have 21 (or at least that is what is on my current roster which may change as the school year approaches). I will have a student that requires a 1:1 para, some wonderful students with IEP goals, a few that will need enrichment and everything in-between.

My Project

Our classroom library needs new storage for students to fully access books available to them at their individual reading levels! It is so important for them to choose a fiction and non-fiction book so I can confer with them each day. Right now the books are packed in so tight and in broken bins that the kids can't see what is there.

Each year I try to update, by spending my own money, on pillows and comfy items for them to curl up with to enjoy reading - these Flex Space Comfy floor seats are sturdy and will hold up to daily use!
