Mrs. Paloma from Milwaukie OR is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need appropriate designated spots on the community area for learning, sharing, and working. WE need a carpet.
In our classroom community, our students identities are shared, honored, and appreciated. We gather daily as a class on our carpet space to learn not only academics but also about each other.
Our elementary school is a bilingual immersion magnet academy in metropolitan Portland, Oregon.
Approximately half the students come from Spanish-speaking homes and half from English-speaking homes. About 50 percent of the students are low-income, qualifying for the federal free and reduced-price lunch program. All the kids are bused to school from around the district. Besides bilingualism, a major goal of the program is to promote intercultural understanding among the students. When students hear the stories of their peers they develop sensitivity and begin to see the commonalities in all our lives. Our kids wiggle with joy when they come to our carpet space.
With the use of the classroom carpet, A Place for Everyone, my student will be able to sit comfortably and enjoy a variety of activities. The activities that they will sit at the carpet for include; community circle, independent work, small groups, reading instruction, mathematics instruction and writing in their journals.
This rugs allows for students to have spaces that encourage students to keep bodies to themselves and make positive choices.
Their current community space does not have designated areas that are large enough for each student to sit comfortably. Sitting in their own space gives them maximum opportunity to fully engaged in the lesson or activity at hand.
