Ms. Thweatt from Chester VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lap Desk for Learning!

My students need 6 lap desks to be able to complete their work for centers. Sitting at their desk can be challenging while working on the carpet with magnetic letters and creating words and sentences. Give them a hand!

My Students

My students are excited about learning! They come to school everyday wanting to learn and be the best students they can be. I’m so proud of the classroom community they have created that make our classroom a fun and great place to learn.

They love working on the carpet with our magnetic letters and leveled readers.

This is a challenge because they often have to lay across the carpet with their notebooks. Help them find a better way to learn and work in comfort.

My Project

My students often work on the carpet to complete assignments that involve writing and reading. While it is fun to move away from their desk, it is also a challenge to write and read. Asking a 6 year old to lay on the carpet and complete work is difficult.

The donations of the lap desks will help my students read, write, work with letter tiles, and more.

They love to learn and these lap desks will help them even more! These will help them organize their supplies. Help my students move away from those hard boring desk and still work.
