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

Let's Just Lay It All Out on the Table

Help me give my students tables to improve the learning experience! The tables we have now are folding plastic tables that just are not ideal for a Kinder classroom!

My Students

My classroom has 17 wonderfully diverse students who come to school each day eager to learn. Some students are confused about the material presented or find it difficult to stay engaged. My goal is to use technology to help these students learn in their own unique way and at their own pace. Our school is a newer Title I school with fewer resources, and many of the parents of the students work more than one job and do not have the means, the language knowledge, or the educational ability to support our students' learning at home. Our school is filled with caring educators that nurture all of these beautiful children in ways that extend beyond the classroom. Providing a meal, personal grooming products, clothing, and other student needs to our families is a common occurrence. I am truly blessed to teach at this school with these wonderful, amazing students and teachers

My Project

These longer, wooden tables are sturdier and provide more space within the classroom for collaboration. We will be able to fit more kiddos in less tables which will allow for more interactive areas to improve the learning!

Right now, we have plastic white folding tables that are really gross and never come clean.

They really are not a good choice for a Kindergarten classroom. We do so much gluing and coloring and even painting. These tables are white! They will never stay clean. They attract germs and are very hard to disinfect. They are also quite tall for these smaller kiddos.

These tables will look nicer, provide more space, and are just over all better for the function of the classroom. Let's make this happen!
