Mrs. LeBel from La Crosse VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Year, New Room, New Needs

My students need a large area rug to sit on during group work, a bookshelf to hold materials and books, and 3 ring binders to save their work and chart growth.

My Students

"Education is improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and the world better than you found it"- Marian Wright Edelman. Teaching children with differences is my passion. My classroom is a world of fun, a spark of hope, and point of growth.

My students are exceptional education students but they are not disabled, they simply learn differently.

My students are energetic, excited and eager to learn all they can within our walls and beyond our walls! They love to investigate, explore and grow as individuals.

My Project

I transferred to the elementary school from the high school and will need basic items to make our classroom feel like home. After 6yrs with older students, I need items to help my classroom feel student friendly and welcoming!

Each item chosen will help our class be organized and functional.

I chose an area rug for group work and whole class activities such as fraction games and less than and greater than alligator activities, a number line to run along the wall and reinforce counting up and back for whole numbers and introducing negative numbers, a large bookshelf to hold bins of everyday materials such as compasses, rulers, graph paper, pencils and reading books to give brain breaks after exams. I chose alternative seating for those having trouble keeping their bodies still because a classroom of diversity includes ADHD and other hyperactivity disorders. Additionally, I chose binders to display and track student growth, as well as a "teacher chair" on wheels to assist me in moving closer to each student during small groups. Lastly, I chose labels to help improve our organization of classroom materials.
