Mrs. Aly from San Jose CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Carpet Desks!

My students need lap desks to use when they are sitting on the carpet.

My Students

My students are avid learners from the moment they step into the classroom until they go home. By the end of the school year, I want my students to challenge themselves and keep researching and finding answers to any questions they might have.

Mahatma Gandhi said, "Live as if you were to die tomorrow.

Learn as if you would live forever." Students need to be taught to never stop learning! We as educators we need to emphasize on their critical thinking!

My Project

My students will be using the lap desks when they come to the carpet. They usually lie down on the carpet because they have nothing to lean on. Getting lap desks will help my students work on the carpet sitting up, and they can use the storage area on the lap desks to store their pencils, erasers, etc. They will be able to avoid clutter on the carpet and have everything organized inside their lap desks.

My students were never able to use their computers on the carpet when they get the lap desks they will be able to, especially when I am modeling on the whiteboard.
