Mrs. Fulton from Las Vegas NV is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need to Stay Awake in Class!

My students need a few other seating options throughout the day for movement in the classroom. I enjoy allowing my students some freedom sitting in other spaces during different subjects.

My Students

My students are from low income families. I teach at a title 1 school. Many of these students come from hard home lives. Many students have parents that are in jail and multiple families living in an apartment. I want to show them how important they are. I want them to feel that they are loved and enjoy learning.I know these students are so intelligent!They need people to lift them up. I want to promote positivity into their lives. I want them to have amazing experiences in my classroom this year! They need amazing experiences to help their growth and self esteem. Help me promote positivity into their lives!

My Project

These different seating arrangements will allow students to increase their learning. While sitting in the tent students will be able to focus on reading longer. The tent will also excite and entice students to want to read.The seats will make the students comfortable. I can use them during math and reading for different places for students to sit. If students are sitting in different areas of the room,they will be able to not get as distracted by others. The seats also will create drive for students to enjoy learning. Students enjoy special incentives to work towards. I can use these seats and tent for that as well.
