Ms. Mahoney from Roseburg OR is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organized Readers Are Leaders

My students need book bins to store their leveled readers and written response journals and baskets to organize small group reading materials and centers.

My Students

First grade is such an exciting stage of rapid development. Students are expected to grow a significant amount of levels in both reading and math, and my kiddos are up for the challenge! They are silly, creative and compassionate.

My students face many obstacles on their path to success, but I am dedicated to ensuring their access to resources and supplies isn't ever one of them!

We are a high poverty Title One school that doesn't receive adequate funding for resources and supplies. My students bond into a classroom family, building each other up and always pushing each other to do their very bests. They are wiggly learners, and love to learn by getting their hands messy with content!

My Project

My students needs basic book bins to individually store their leveled readers, library choices and other books. I promote and encourage a deep love of reading in my classroom, and having an individual and special place to store their books can help to foster this love. My students also need basic baskets to store group materials and resources in.

My district has adopted a new phonics program this year which denotes a lot of print-outs, word work and phonics manipulatives to be stored and organized by group.

Having these basic bins to organize materials will help my students stay organized and focused on the task at hand, instead of wasting time searching for materials or resources to help them do their best.
