Ms. C. from Houston TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need To Finish Organizing Our Room

My students need bookshelves and storage bins for our math, science, reading manipulates, and books. My students need an organized library and reading area! My students would enjoy a classroom that was clutter free.

My Students

My students come from southeast Houston. Most of my students are on free or reduced-price lunch. The apartments that surround the school that the majority of them live in was so devastated by Hurricane Harvey that most of my students' apartments were flooded and they needed to evacuate. Most of my students now are living with extended family, friends, or in a shelter.

Their lives have changed drastically just within the past weeks.

I want to help support them when they get to come back to school. School should be the place they feel safe and at home.

My Project

One of the most important things I can do for my students is to encourage them and promote the importance of reading! Currently, our classroom has a classroom library that is difficult to keep organized and maintained. Our books are organized on a bookshelf that gets very messy, and it can be difficult to keep books organized by genre.

My dream is to have more bookshelves that will keep our wonderful classroom library organized by genre, and will be inviting for my students to read!

The bookshelves will help my students go through our current book selection in an organized manner. They will also help encourage my students to want to read more since they will be set up in an orderly manner. These book bins will help my students come into a student-centered classroom that is inviting and welcoming to learn in! Being that we are a bilingual class it will also support my student's comprehension in their second language.
