Mrs. Schrock from Lansing MI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

SOS: Storing Our Stuff - Outdoor Storage for Preschool

My students need a storage shed (including flooring), shelving units, and storage bins, to hold our outdoor materials.

My Students

My students are prekindergarten students who meet the state requirements and are labeled as being "at risk" of not succeeding, thus they are placed in the program to help them succeed. They are four years of age and live in a medium-large city.

My children love to explore, experiment, build, and create, and I am eager to expand outside resources in my classroom.

My classroom is beautiful, and has many materials. However, our outside area needs some attention. Although I provide as much as I can from my own stock of materials, sometimes newer and fresh materials grab their interest better. In addition, we have no outside storage.

My Project

My classroom has no outdoor storage, but our curriculum requires us to allow access to multiple outdoor resources every day. This means that we must hand-carry our things outside every day, plus find room inside our room for materials.

My students love to ride bikes, play ball, and use all of our wonderful resources, but asking them to choose just one thing to carry outside is difficult - they often change what they do multiple times while we are outside.

By providing a shed, shelving, and storage units, we can store our resources outside and the children will have free access to the materials when they do change their minds.

I am requesting a 6 foot by 8 foot shed, and shelves with bins. This will allow enough room for our bicycles in the center of the shed, plus storage for our resources on the shelves. The higher shelves can be used to store seasonal items when we don't need them. When we go outside (30 minutes twice daily), the children will be able to get what they want, use it, and replace it - maybe several times over each day.
