Mrs. Westcott from Bloomington MN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

More Places to Learn, Please!

My students need more seating options to learn! The cool, portable lap desks and floor cushions make it possible for students to work on the floor and utilize all the spaces in the room.

My Students

I have the best job! My lovely kindergarten classroom is in a public school in Bloomington, Minnesota.

We are unique and rich with diversity.

The majority of the students at our school are from low-income households. Many of my students speak a language other than English in their homes. Our school also has a gifted and talented learning program. My kindergarten classroom made up of 23 five and six years old with varying school-readiness skills. My students are excited to be in kindergarten and are learning how to keep their little bodies in control.

My Project

My kindergarten students need to move around and use all the spaces in the classroom to do their best learning.

I believe that students do best when they have choices and feel in control of their learning.

I can set up different learning centers and reading areas with these materials. We are in need of wobble chairs, so that students can work and wiggle to gain focus. This project will provide floor cushions and lap desks for kids to work all over the room. The cushion recliners will provide support for students to do some comfy reading.

Kids do best when they are having fun. They are going to be so excited to use these materials!

I realize this is a big project and every little bit helps. These materials will be used by kindergarten students for years to come. I am truly grateful for any donation towards this project!
