Mrs. McKissick from Bridgeport CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Books Need a Home!

My students need book bins to neatly store all of our wonderful books neatly on shelves and in each center for easy access. They also need multicultural paper for individualized projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My inclusive and dual language classroom consist of 18 bright Pre-K learner's that vary on all learning levels and learning needs. With a very diverse classroom consisting of many cultures all at once, I am eager to educating and enlightening them on what goes on in their school, community, and world around them. My classroom includes several students with special needs and require additional support beyond teacher-led instruction. As a result, I go beyond what is required to educate and meet the needs of each student through differentiation, showing them support and love.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students and future students lives because having access to books will increase their individual reading goals and help close the achievement gap in our district. These book bins will also keep the classroom materials organized (books will be categorized by season, holiday, themes, etc.) promote library skills and increase their enthusiasm in wanting to read more frequently.

The construction paper selected will make a difference for my students because it will assist in our many multicultural crafts and activities that we will create throughout the academic year.

We hope you will consider supporting our project!
