Mrs. Sittner from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Shelves and Seats for Students

My students need storage cabinets, desks, and seating for an organized space that is conducive for learning. We will also need some extra seating and desks for engaging learning centers in all subject areas.

My Students

My classroom is extremely diverse and the students are from all different economic classes. This school is considered to be a technology school as well as a green school.

The students are gifted and are working one grade level above.

They are amazing and have an unbelievable internal drive to learn. However, they are still 6 and 7 years old and need to wiggle and move. They need an organized space that allows for easy transitions with very little wait time between lessons.

My Project

I am requesting 2 cabinets so that the students can have a clean and organized space that is conducive for learning. I am hoping to free up some table space and create engaging learning centers in all subject areas for my students to use daily.

The free table space along with a couple desks and stools will aide in creating this fun and useful space for my students.

I am also in need of printer ink that will help create activities for this space. I will be creating a classroom that allows for movement and allows students to be in charge of their own learning. The chargers I requested are for our classroom Kindles and technology center that allows students to play educational games.
