Help me give my students a carpet to have a place to enjoy read-alouds and building community.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We belong to an elementary school in Dallas, Texas. My 37 students are divided into two dual-language classes. My students are working very hard building basic literacy skills in English and Spanish. They are doing a great job with the phonics. It amazes me how they are making connections between themselves and the stories we have read.
Readers are lifelong learners!
My first-grade students are active, curious and receptive. They are ready to discover many things through reading.
At this moment we gather in an open area in the classroom just delimited with tape. A carpet in my classroom will provide my students with a selected area to belong and take an active part in our learning community.
It will provide a space for activities that impact their reading enjoyment and comprehension.
In the beginning, we had our whole group instruction from our tables, but it was hard to elicit conversations with the whole class.
My students will have a comfortable and inviting carpet; a place to enjoy read-alouds, learning new reading concepts and practice them all together having my support near them.
