Mrs. Vailant from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Magic Seat Sacks!

My students need extra storage for their favorite library books. These seat sacks are ideal to save room in the tight classroom. They also allow for students to have quick access to their favorite library books!

My Students

What makes my students special is their drive to learn! This year I have students who are in their first year of full English instruction. It's exciting to see their determination to learn in a language that is relatively new for them in terms of academics.

My students are from the first or second Mexican American generation, and they live in a 95% minority neighborhood.

Ninety-five percent of these students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Our school is 95% low income and is located in the heart of a community that is changing drastically. The majority of our teachers are extremely hardworking and work extended hours in order for us to provide the best education to our students!

My Project

These seat sacks will make a major difference in students reading habits. One of the hardest things is for students to have a place to store their favorite books. Throughout the school day I like students to get a chance to read and one way these sacks can help is making sure students have their books. These sacks will help with students organization of their other materials in their desks as well.

Imagine having a special place to quickly grab your favorite chapter book or book and read it.

These sacks will contribute to students maintaining our classroom library books in good condition. Just having a tool like these will encourage students to keep reading and staying organized! Please help make this possible in my classroom.
