Ms. Rivera from Columbus OH is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Carpet Time

My students need a personal space (carpet) where they feel comfortable and ready to learn during read alouds, phonics instruction, read to self time, and writing time meetings.

My Students

My classroom is full of hard working students who are eager to learn! Many of them are coming to me without any prior classroom experience; yet, they work hard and exceed my expectations daily. I am fortunate to be part of a school community that, without hesitation, goes above and beyond the call of duty to meet the individual needs of the families we serve. We do whatever it takes to provide them with the support they need in order to be successful.

My Project

Over the summer our classroom carpet was cleaned but was not unfolded to dry. Sadly, when we returned to school in the fall, we discovered that it had grown mold and had to be thrown out. We were fortunate enough to find a replacement but it does not provide us with the space we need.

Having a larger carpet would allow my students the space they need to be able to complete several independent and whole group activities!

We use the carpet throughout the day for read alouds, phonics instruction, read to self center rotation, and whole group instruction.

My students would love to have a personal space at the carpet to call their own, and it would help them to remember where they sit each time we come to carpet.
