Mrs. Berrios from Madison WI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Storage for Our Shortage

My students need a space to store math materials that are easily accessible to them and their independent work. We need boxes to store and some materials that are necessary for the classrroom.

My Students

What makes my students special? Their desire to learn. My students are special, they are children who give love but also need a lot from their teachers. They are cheerful, they like the recess time, they like to laugh and enjoy in the park when the weather is beautiful. My students come from a community that is difficult, economically and socially. The students are typically from under-represented populations: minorities, low-income, single parent households. I want these kids to have a fun way to learn and keep motivated in their learning and feel safe in their environment.

My Project

Having materials accessible to students is very important. As a teacher, we need our students to be independent and able to access their materials easily at the time of the lessons. That is why we need a space like a shelf with clear bins that is easily visible and well labeled for math manipulatives. The storage boxes will be excellent for their math centers. And of course, a great alternative to not lose the materials. Donating to this project will make the learning process an easy one. I appreciate your interest in helping my students and I will be more than happy to have an organized classroom. Thanks!
