Mrs. Schloth from Portland OR is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

You Are Free to Move Around the Classroom!

My students need a clean, cozy rug with a listening station and other fun learning activities that gets their wiggly bodies out of their rigid seats and onto an area where they can learn in comfort.

My Students

My school is a low-income/high poverty school with over 75% of our school's students on Free and Reduced Lunch. I have nine students whose first language is not English, three receiving speech services, and three with special education needs. Many in my class have experienced/are experiencing traumatic situations and school for them is their safe, consistent place. Many don't have access to a variety of books and/or their situations have not allowed them to be read to on a consistent basis. We know that this lays the foundation for developing a love of reading.

Despite the hurdles they are jumping and challenges they face, my students persevere and come to school with big, brave hearts.

They are wiggly, active and enthusiastic learners who thrive on learning in fun, engaging ways. Their needs and learning styles are diverse. They want to be comfortable and they also want to make connections.

My Project

My students need a comfortable, home-like space that feels cozy and allows them to move their bodies and learn in non-traditional ways. They sometimes need a space to rest or take a break when their emotions are overwhelming. They need to connect with their peers, be able to sprawl or curl up with a big pillow, and feel "at home" with a book.

If my project is funded, I will be able to provide an inviting, comfortable space in my room with a clean, new carpet, reclining floor seats, and a listening station with books on CD.

This will allow them to hear stories read aloud in a comfortable environment with a home-like feel. It will provide a space for partner reading and making connections with other students.
