Mrs. Mendoza from Fremont CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Spot to Learn

My students need a spot to sit on as we are learning. This will also allow us to do activities with the carpet.

My Students

Do you know how hard it is to focus when you are trying to sit on the ground? My class is always moving around trying to be comfortable so they can focus on the lesson.

I have 30 wonderful eager to learn 1st graders.

They love spending time on the carpet to be involved in the lesson of the day. We are a school located in a nice area of California. We like to get these guys exposed to as much as we can at the young age, so they are ready when they get to the upper grades.

My Project

This carpet will serve as a great resource. It could be a place to sit and listen to the lesson. It has a way for me to assign spots to protect against issues during the lesson. It will allow me to help incoming English learners with the letters. I could also promote reading by allowing the students to read there with their reading buddy.

This will make a tremendous impact in my classroom.

It will add a warm feeling to the classroom as the students enter. The possibilities will be endless with this one carpet. As you can see, there are so many ways it will help my 30 little learners do what they love to do, learn.
