Mrs. Burgess from Rockwood TN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Place for Everyone

My students need a rug for a clean place to sit for group activities.

My Students

Sometimes classrooms can feel impersonal with students sitting at their own desks in their own area. This is needed for some classroom instruction, testing, and other individual activities. But to bring the class together in a personal setting, the classroom carpet is the ideal place.

I teach in a rural county in East Tennessee.

Over 50% of the student population at my school receives free or reduced lunches meaning that they come from homes where resources are scarce. Some of the students come to school having very little experiences, resources, or educational activities. It is my desire to create in them a love for learning that will last a lifetime.

My Project

I am asking for a large classroom rug that seats up to 30 students. Classroom rugs can provide a room within a room. This means that the teacher has a space that is measured out, well defined, and easy for kids to identify. A simple, "Please sit on the carpet," request by a teacher means that students know exactly where to go. Since the design of a carpet outlines itself, children know the boundaries. Sitting on the carpet means that students can easily and quickly be sent to one area where further instruction can take place.

With lots of big, bold squares in 5 vibrant colors, this giant-sized carpet provides play plenty of seating options for the whole class!

The extra-roomy squares give each child lots of space to sit and play, and the color-coded rows make it easy to divide the class into small groups.
