Ms. Lopez from Houston TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organization Really Matters

Help me give my students a well organized classroom. The materials I need will help me bring materials home and help learners be organized and practice organization skills in the classroom.

My Students

My students are risk takers. They are not afraid of making mistakes. They are a group of learners that are willing to learn and are eager to learn from others. My classroom provides a safe environment where we value everyone's culture. We are all equal. My students are bilingual, they are learning each other's languages and cultures.

My students are part of a public 2nd-grade two-way dual language program.

They are learning both English and Spanish. In my classroom, we are learning to appreciate diversity and accept different cultures.

My Project

The project will help organize the classroom and work stations for students. In our classroom, we have multiple stations that fit the needs of every student. The bins will help us keep our stations neat. Having a mobile cart will allow me to bring materials into the classroom. For science we do a lot of hands on lessons and carrying multiple items can be heavy. I am looking to be more efficient with resources available. The learners will be expose to rich lessons that require planning time and that is why having a mobile crate will allow me to bring items into the classroom.
