Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a first grade teacher in a public school in East Harlem, New York. I teach for several hours with the children on the floor while sitting on the carpet, but recently the carpets have gotten dirty and unattractive. The school does not have the funds to pay for two new carpets, so please donate one 6 foot by 8 foot carpets so the students can sit and learn comfortably. Bright colors are best because students like to learn in a bright environment, which I try to convey in my classroom. I am teaching the alphabet to the children, as well as three dimensional shapes in math, and with this carpet, the children can look at the board and walk around the material they learn! We also do read-alouds, morning math, and class science experiments with the children sitting on the floor, so it is important for the children to be engaged while sitting, and a colorful and large carpet is perfect for this! Thank you.
