Mrs. Azurmendi from Irvington NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Flying Carpet to Success

Help me give my students a place to sit and learn where each child can pay attention and have a space all to themselves. Little learners need space to wiggle and shift in their spots!

My Students

My students are my second set of kids! My students are three year-olds that come from an area of very high economic need in Irvington. They are curious, thoughtful and eager learners. This is the period of time when they are learning to love school: a love that will hopefully follow them for years to come. The entire school has a new found energy for literacy with our new Lending Library. Their passion to keep learning despite the odds inspires me.

My Project

The students in my class need a space to sit that is all their own. The large blocked carpet will allow the students to each have a space where they can shift and wiggle and have their sensory needs met so that they are able to learn and understand.

The seats will help those with varying needs to have additional support and have their own individual seating needs more effectively met!

The varied seating addresses the unique personalities of all of my little learners and allows them to choose the seat that will help them to be the best learners that they can be!
