Mrs. Balmir from Glen Oaks NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Kidney Table to Help Minds Grow

Help me give my students exactly with they need as far as teacher support. Children often need small group instruction and having a table in which I can face each student in a small setting would be great.

My Students

Our students are curious, active, and inquisitive second graders. They are both general education students and students with disabilities in an ICT setting in an urban school. Our school educates students from Kindergarten through eighth grade, so we have the pleasure of watching these babies grow into young adults.

Our students are so special and deserve to be comfortable while learning and to have the option for seating.

They enjoy working with their classmates and expressing their thoughts and opinions.

My Project

While it may appear so, not all students in one classroom learn the same way. Each student is as unique as a fingerprint.

By donating to this proposal, it will give our students a comfortable environment to learn and collaborate with their peers.

They can learn and sit comfortably at the same time. Many times during the day in our collaborative teaching classroom there are small groups happening.

Having a table like this will ensure we will not have to sit on the floor while working in groups and children can partner with their peers. Our children will appreciate it.
