My Students

I teach Kindergarten students in a public school in New Orleans. We are a non-selective enrollment school. We take 'All' students. Our students come from high poverty, working class families. All of my students qualify for the Free Lunch program. We are currently in a portable classroom because our old school is under renovation due to severe termite damage.

I am asking for a small, compact kidney table and an area rug for having the basic supplies for creating a comfy cozy environment for my students.

I spend a great deal of time working with small groups. I also spend quality time working individually with students. I currently do not have place to work in RTI or small groups with students. The students need a safe and comfortable spot for instruction. Your kind donations could make this possible for my class to function as a class should.

My Project

Our Kindergarten students need a safe and comfortable kidney table for small group and RTI learning. We currently use two desks tied together. Our old rug has become very smelly. Even though we have vacuumed and shampooed its too worn out for kids to feel comfortable.

in New Orleans at a public school with a class full of kindergarten students, I need a 36" x 72" Golden Oak Adjustable Half Moon Table RTI and also a comfortable large rug for whole group interaction.

Students also use the rug when they are at centers. The calming colors of the rug I am requesting should help my students relax and feel more at ease.

The students will really progress academically and socially with new and comfortable places for meeting and engagement. It will boost their self-confidence and your donation will have helped a class.
