My classroom is busy place filled with 25 eager first graders. We are located in the South Bronx, New York. 98% of the students in the school receive free or reduced lunch, which means that it is a high-poverty school. The teachers are amazing full of ideas to support learning and lessen the achievement gap. Yet these ideas and general best practices for teaching require supplies that are outside of the school's budget. My students are hard working leaders from the South Bronx. We currently have a carpet that is very small and can not fit 25 students. In kindergarten, we spend so much time on the carpet that I know my students would be so happy to have a brand new big carpet. My students don't have much and we would all be so thankful for this or any amazing gift!
