Ms. Grossmann from Fort Lee NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading in Style!

My students need a new reading carpet! This year we are embarking on a new reading journey. I want to make independent readers who love sitting with a good book in comfort!

My Students

The students in my classroom are very special kids. They truly try their hardest to succeed at anything they put their minds to. This year my students have a variety of needs. In an inclusive setting, the classroom consists of a quarter of children with special needs. This has allowed my classroom to thrive and help students learn about diversity.

All children deserve a chance to learn in the best environment possible.

Through the help of others, we are able to help our children get the best available support out there. We hope you enjoy learning as much as we do and helping us succeed in our futures!

My Project

A new carpet will set the mood that reading is fun and is not just to be done at school in your desk. I want my students to feel like reading can take them on a journey to anyplace they want to go! Children who love to read get “lost” in their books! I will continue to support an environment where children can grow and become independent thinkers. The carpet will give just one more place where they can feel at home in their classroom. Work doesn’t always need to be done at their seats. They can move anywhere in my classroom to achieve the optimal reading experience!
