Ms. McCoy from Fayetteville NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Organized Library Materials

My students need storage to organize our library area, and a tote to carry book outdoors to read when we are on the playground.

My Students

My students are in a Title I preschool and 100% of our students receive free lunch. Many of the students have a parent in the military. The children must meet at-risk criteria to attend this program. The criteria includes family income, identified disabilities, parent employment, and English proficiency.

I provide a creative classroom environment with materials in the learning centers that are empowering students through art.

I also provide science, technology, engineering, and math activities. I believe this will prepare all my students to be successful in kindergarten and beyond.

My Project

To make the class operate more efficiently, we need storage materials for our library and outdoor reading nook. The classroom is decorated in calming colors to give the students a since of serenity and structure. This is why we need the boarder, lanterns, and bulletin board letters to visually relax the children. The students will use the book bins, and storage bins to organize the library and thematic books in the interest centers. This will make it easy to follow the classroom expectation of putting things back in their place when your finish with them. Right now our space is some what organized but the students are not cleaning up independently. I have dollar store baskets that need to be replaced because they are easily broken by my preschool students.

I believe these materials will get rid of dead spaces that encourage wandering, untidiness, and unruly behavior.

With the new organized room arrangement, my preschool classroom will promote the desirable action of being organized. I want my students to use materials effectively, such as choosing books to take outside. The rolling tote will make that task simple and serve a storage also.

This project will make a difference by allowing my students to gain their independence when choosing supplies needed to learn through play and reach the goal of cleaning up on their own.
