Ms. Metarko from Woodbridge VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading and Math Centers

Help me give my students a more organized classroom. With these materials, students will have their math and reading centers out and ready to use in an organized location in the classroom.

My Students

The students in my classroom come from low socioeconomic status and diverse backgrounds. Our school is a Title I school because of its high level of poverty. Eighty percent of the students receive free or reduced price lunch. Each student comes to my classroom with different background knowledge and experience that they connect to their learning. They bring their own individuality to the classroom and each one learns in a different way.

My students are in charge of their own success and learning.

For my students to be exposed to the most comfortable and engaging learning environment, they need to feel like they are a part of a classroom community where they can be successful. To accomplish this, students are given the chance to take responsibility for their learning into their own hands.

My Project

The materials in my project will help students have a more organized classroom and will allow them to take responsibility for the materials they need to complete independent math and reading centers.

Using these materials will teach students to be responsible when working independently.

They will be able to take ownership of their classwork and materials.

The picture books will connect to our curriculum by allowing upper elementary students to engage in read alouds with valuable lessons. Students are able to use these picture books during independent reading time as well. The images are helpful for the students in my classroom that are newcomers and have not fully developed the English language.
