Ms. Giese from Dubuque IA is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy Loungers

My students need 3 beanbag chairs for comfortable and relaxed reading.

  • $205 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Throughout the day, my students have opportunities to read independently and in small groups. How awesome would reading be if they could sit in comfortable bean bag chairs to make their reading experience more inviting?

My school is located in the Midwest in an impoverished and diverse neighborhood.

Last year, this Midwest school had nearly 90% of its students enrolled in the Free/Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Program. I will have a classroom of 26 third graders of varying ability levels and learning styles.

My Project

My students will use the 3 bean bag chairs for reading independently. They can move these bean bags around the room so they are not confined to their desks. Sitting in a more comfortable setting will be more engaging and motivating for my students to read.

Your donation will help my current, first year students and the many other students after them.

Reading will be more exciting and fun in bean bag chairs rather than in their desks.
