Ms. McRae from Worcester MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Books Need a Place!

My students need a bookshelf to help them put their books and materials away. This bookshelf is perfect because it's made of kid friendly materials, no hard edges, and short enough for kids to reach.

My Students

Welcome to Ms. M's 1st Grade class! Thank you for reviewing my welcome message. I am a 1st Grade teacher to 21 students in a public school in Worcester, Massachusetts. Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood. Many of them are ELL students who come from Haiti, Ghana, Iraq, El Salvador, and other countries. They are all very enthusiastic about learning and working hard.

I want them to know that they are valuable, special members of our class.

They come to school every day eager to learn and face the challenges of learning. It is inspiring to see their resilience, honesty, and care for each other. To continue to provide a safe, inviting, and learning environment for my students, we need YOUR help!

Your donation will truly make a difference in the lives of each one of my students, whether by giving them their own place to keep their books and materials or developing a solid foundation in reading and writing. I thank you very much for your support.

My Project

It's amazing how many different things make up a 1st Grade classroom. My class uses 4 different kinds of writing journals, alphabet and 100's charts, easy reader book bins, magnetic letters and word cards, and various math manipulatives. All of these materials need to be stored and readily accessible to teachers and kids, because we use these various materials anytime during the day everyday.

My classroom needs a large, long sturdy bookshelf to hold our book bins, journals, and various other materials.

Although my room has 2 other bookshelves, neither of them are long enough to hold all our materials. We need another one to satisfy our storage needs.
