My Students

My school is a Title I school where more than 3/4 of students receive free and reduced lunches. We have a weekend meal program available for students. Our students come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and represent many cultures and languages.

My students LOVE learning!

They especially love hands-on experiences. Our classroom is a busy, exciting place where students are able to interact with each other and to explore. We strive to provide many kinds of learning experiences for all students.

My Project

We currently do not have a classroom carpet and would really love one! We would like a carpet to designate our meeting space and would like to have a carpet where students could have their own spot on the rug.

We would use the carpet for class meetings and for whole group lessons.

The particular carpet I selected would allow each student to have their own spot, and would also be very useful for number recognition, counting games, and could be used in some of our math lessons. Students could also use the carpet as a flexible seating choice when they are working with partners or independently.
