Ms. Wood from Upton WY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Railroad: College Bound!

My students need 6 bean bag chairs for comfortable reading in preparation for college!

  • $357 goal

This project expired on June 11, 2010.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Interacting with the fifteen special needs students at my rural school inspires me to work hard every day! We have a wonderful large classroom and a good collection of desks. We even have a table for group work.

However, we do not have a comfortable area in which to read. My students are bright and talented, but often struggle with reading comprehension or fluency. Many of them are several grade levels behind in their reading scores. Nearly all of my students wish to attend college one day and work admirably each day to improve their reading.

I want to provide my students with a reading area in which they will feel safe and comfortable. Bean bag chairs will provide a relaxing setting for individual or group reading exercises. Sometimes simply making the environment more welcoming can encourage reading, I believe a comfy seating option will do this for my students. We currently have one rocker chair that they love to read in and there is usually a race to see who can sit there!

Your contribution to this project will benefit special needs students for many years to come. Their individual reading goals and college aspirations will be greatly influenced by your donation, thank you in advance!
