Mrs. McGee from Fairbanks AK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Meeting Students' Needs

Help me give my students a learning experience that is flexible and customizable to their needs. The guided reading collection will be extremely helpful targeting reading goals for students based on where they're at.

My Students

My students are world traveller chameleons. Many of them weren't even born in this country and have yet to establish a hometown because they move every three years. You would think that would affect the sense of community we can create in a classroom, but you would be wrong! We're a community of learners that have a deep connection with the military. I strive to foster their individualized learning styles and find ways to make them thrive with 21st century skills. This is why I would like to ask for your assistance in bringing flexible seating to facilitate that individualized learning. A variety of seats help to diversify learning in the classroom.

Along with the positive impact these seats can have on my classroom they also offer insights into how my students best learn.

As students get older these insights can help make them successful, more independent learners.

Please help me facilitate these aspirations for great things as I try to make a big difference in a short amount of time.

My Project

The items that I'm requesting will help meet students' needs where they are. The guided reading books have both fiction and nonfiction paired selections so that I can help strengthen their understanding where they need it most.

Students spend a lot of time sitting working on assignments.

Having flexible seating helps give students a variety of choices so they can find what works best for them and how they learn. Seats like the yoga balls give students an option to move while focusing on work. The floor seats give needed back support for students who enjoy spreading out and working on the floor.

By donating to this project you will be helping students have a more effective learning experience.
