Mrs. Holthaus from Phoenix AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Space for Everyone! A Classroom Carpet

My students need a new and improved carpet for our classroom. Our current carpet is too small for our class and does not allow each student to have their own space.

My Students

First grade is a time of transition wh ere students are developing their creativity and sense of self!

I love watching my students grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially: they learn so much and gain skills to last them a lifetime!

My students attend a Title 1 school in the Phoenix area. I have little learners ranging across all levels who are eager, excited and clever. Their craftiness and creativity keeps me on my toes! My students are a great group with very sweet hearts!

My Project

I believe that when a space is inclusive and cle arly defined, students can be inspired to try their best because they feel a sense of pride in their learning. Students tend to feel safe and comfortable when given their own space with a set of clear expectations for themselves and their peers.

Our time on the carpet gives us an excellent opportunity to have more in-depth conversations and concentrate on our learning targets.

Presently, students feel squished together, leading to wiggly bodies, unnecessary disruptions, and smooshed fingers!

A new carpet would help to structure our daily routine and give us a safe and comfortable space for more focused learning!
