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

Space Monsters

My students need space at their seat to keep books and supplies. The tables we were given do not have this space built in.

My Students

In this first grade class, the students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We have an ethnically and economically diverse group. Students have a range of abilities and work well together, supporting one another's efforts. There are a few English language learners, a few students with special needs, and several gifted students.

We are a community of writers who write together and individually every day!

Some of us write well above grade level, some are on level and some write below grade level expectations, but we all write every day.

My Project

Space is a premium in our room. We have a large room with limited storage space. Last year students kept books and supplies in small boxes that proved difficult to access and often made school work hard to keep wrinkle free. This year I am hoing to add a small storage basket at each seat for students to keep works in progress and maybe a few books. This would be in addition to the seat sacks they use for their workbooks. This way students can have easy access to what they need and a space to keep things tidy. Thanks!
