Mrs. L. from Olympia WA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

So Many Toys...So Little Storage

My students need a sturdy, safe storage shelf with bins to organize and store all of the amazing manipulatives we have acquired through Donor's Choose projects that have been funded.

My Students

Stacia Tauscher stated, "We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” That someone may be an inventor, a creator, a scientist, carpenter, or a mathematician.

I work with special needs preschool students from the ages of 3-5.

My students range from speech delayed to severe Autism, and everything in between. I work to create as many opportunities as I can for my students in my classroom, all while meeting each student at their developmental level. Education is fun and exciting, and I get to be the first classroom many of our future scholars will experience and I strive to make it a fun, enticing, creative, and engaging workspace for each child.

My Project

We have been so lucky to have previous projects funded which included hands-on manipulatives, toys, gadgets, gears, peg boards, math, and science toys...but we don't have a safe and functional place to keep everything. Stacking tubs on top of the counters are starting to get a bit difficult to manage. A sturdy storage self-helps to organize our items and keep them at our student's level.

Keeping our supplies organized and easily accessible helps our students learn responsibility in the classroom.

Also having a shelf that is preschool friendly and safe is a must. Bins and a storage shelf will be a great addition to our classroom to store our amazing items.
