Mrs. Wilburn from Ware Shoals SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Carpet for Collaboration!

My students need a larger classroom carpet to enable them to sit together each day for morning meetings and for lesson collaboration. This would give them plenty of space to sit comfortable while collaborating with peers.

My Students

I have an eager group of students ready to accomplish any of the tasks that are laid in front of them. We live in a small town in South Carolina. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am working to create a comfortable and safe learning environment in order to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

I have 24 students in my class, 11 girls and 13 boys.

Several of my students have an ADD/ADHD diagnosis, others were in a self-contained behavior class last year. I am in need of alternative learning options. My students have a great desire to learn, however sometimes their need to move or be in a different position hinder optimum learning.

Our school serves students in grades K-4 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in high school and college.

My Project

My students need a larger carpet. We can not all fit on the carpet that we have currently. We will use this carpet every day over 5 times a day. We spend most of our time on the carpet. We begin each day with a morning meeting. It is a time where we can come together on the carpet to spend time interacting with one another. Morning meeting gives us an opportunity to build a strong sense of community, and set up our students for success socially and academically. This carpet will make a huge impact by allowing space for my students to sit comfortably.

A larger carpet will give us the ability to sit together as a classroom family and collaborate with one another.

Currently, some of my students are having to share spots or sit on the tile floor. Which, is not ideal for optimal learning.
