Mrs. Rodenbeck from Pawleys Island SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stretch Out and Read!

Help me give my students some flexible seating so we can get out of our chairs. I am looking to have two new rugs so students can choose where to learn.

My Students

I teach at a school that serves Pre-K through third grade. I am a second grade teacher that has a bright group of 18 students. They have a wide variety of interests from sports to science to animals. They are all bright, capable students that come from many different backgrounds and homes.

My students love to read and work throughout the room.

It is important to offer many different work spaces for them to use throughout the day. We love to lay on the rug, sit at tables, or relax on a bean bag.

My Project

I would like to create some flexible seating for my students so they do not always have to sit at a table or desk to work. Two rugs would help my students have choices where they could stretch out and complete their work with plenty of space.

My students will have a place to get away from their desks to stretch out and learn.

I feel it will create a more relaxing yet engaging environment for all the students. Students will be able to have options as to where they perform best. They would be able to still have their own area but not have to be at their individual desk.
