Mrs. Purdy from Binghamton NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading and Writing Round Table!

My students need a sturdy, reliable kidney shaped table to read and write on during our groups. Our current table tops are peeling up and pinching the children as they read and write.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are hard working students who are striving to achieve grade level reading levels. Many of them are more than one grade level behind and come from homes that either do not support them academically or do not have the means to support them academically. Over 95% of our students come from high poverty situations. Recently, we have also seen a high number of students from hurricane stricken areas.

Our currently table tops are peeling up and pinching the children as they read and write in our groups.

This is making it difficult to concentrate and get through our lessons with focus. The unsteady surface also makes it difficult to write legibly.

My Project

My students have the opportunity to receive intense, small group instruction during their Reading Intervention time.

This table will provide a clean and reliable work area for my students as they become more proficient readers and writers.

Our currently table tops are peeling up and pinching the children as they read and write in our groups. This is making it difficult to concentrate and get through our lessons with focus. The unsteady surface also makes it difficult to write legibly. The new tables will give the students an opportunity to progress in their reading and writing success. This will help our students feel happier to learn.
