Mrs. Negron from Tampa FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Replacing What Was Lost

My students need items like wobble seats, rugs, and educational games that will help them feel comfortable once again. Our lovely school burnt down just after Hurricane Irma. After losing everything but each other, we moved to another school site.

My Students

Being at a Magnet school, my classroom is very diverse. They come from various neighborhoods within the county, and very different home cultures.

My students thrive when provided with engaging lessons, especially those that include hands-on activities, movement, and freedom of choice.

In a world where children grow up with everything happening at full speed, their attention skills have lessened. When students are excited about their learning, everything falls into place. Stress levels are reduced, social skills strengthen, and students are immersed in a world of learning!

It is my ultimate goal to create an environment where all students can excel. In order to do so, we need materials that provide students with structure, while also allowing for student choice.

My Project

In September of 2017, our school burnt down as a result of Hurricane Irma. Since then, we have lost everything: our desks, calming tools, game pieces, rug for class meetings and lessons, and more! Though we are grateful to be together as one "FamiLEE", we are spread throughout another school site. Now that we are settled, we are realizing we miss specific items that make our day meaningful, productive, and happier.

The wobble seats and bouncy bands, for example, made our plastic seats much more comfortable, and helped us "get our wiggles out" during the school day.

Our rug is a comfortable place to meet together throughout the day, rather than sitting right on the floor. The additional rug provides students with a cozy space to read near the classroom library.

The various character education materials are replacing a few of the many resources that were available to us. They will be utilized throughout the week to help us manage complicated emotions.

The dice and card decks, chime, grouping pencils, and game buzzers bring our classroom to life! With these materials, our classroom becomes a FUN place of learning! Overall, when our minds and bodies are at ease, and we have the necessary materials, we are able to fully engage in fun learning experiences!
