Mrs. Fox from Stamford CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Cozy, Comfortable, Community Carpet

My students need a larger carpet so everyone can fit comfortably. As we come together as a whole group, we need space to sit, so that we are able to work as a community.

My Students

My classroom usually consists of nineteen high energy students who work from the minute they enter the room until the minute they line up to leave. We work collaboratively during much of the day, and at times, need a bit of space to work independently. Their ages range from five to six years old. They are eager to learn, and love to work with their peers.

Our school is one of two neighborhood schools in our district.

Many students walk home or get picked up by their parents because they live less than a mile from school. We are a tight knit community that celebrates our school's diversity, achievements, and strives to instill character strengths such as gratitude, kindness, and grit, to name a few.

My Project

Recently, I have remodeled my classroom with tables rather than desks. This allows for more room to gather as a group, and meet as a community. The carpet I currently have will be transferred into the book nook, where students can cuddle up with a book.

A larger, cozy, comfortable carpet will help the kids have a bit more space while coming together to work, share, and play.

It is a joy to watch the kids partner up to read, spread out with a book, or even just play together, given the right amount of space. This larger carpet will help achieve just that!
