Mrs. Winn from Glenpool OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pocket Full of Readers

Help me give my students a personal seat pocket for their chair. They can use these to store leveled readers and student materials.

My Students

I have always heard "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life" and this is so true for me.

I teach first grade at a Title I School in Oklahoma.

I absolutely love First Grade!

My students are creative, clever and very active! They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as typical.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

This will make a substantial difference in my students' learning because they will be able to store all of their supplies in an accessible location.

Students will be able to store their math books, writing notebooks, and leveled reading materials!

How convenient is that? This will ease transitions and allow students to find materials right at their chairs when they arrive to their table spots after we spend time learning together at the carpet, outside!

I hope to be able to support my students' learning with these chair pockets by utilizing the time we will gain from not needing to gather resources from around the classroom.
