Ms. Williams from Lexington NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Rug Needed!

My students need a soft carpet to sit at when doing whole group projects and a space where they are not uncomfortable when important whole group discussions are taking place.

My Students

My students come to school everyday with a smile on their face and eager to learn. Even though they come from a school where they all receive free breakfast and lunch, these children are always wanting to learn something new and share their knowledge with everyone around.

My classroom is a place that makes my children feel safe and secure.

School is a very important part of their lives. Many of them do not get excited about long weekends or holidays because they would rather be at school where they feel safe and can learn without distractions. My students love to read and play hands on activities in other places in my classroom besides desks and chairs.

My Project

We are requesting a rug for our classroom to use during our whole group lessons, calendar, and story time. My students need a soft and cozy carpet to invite them to learn.

We spend the beginning of almost every lesson on the carpet and I would like my student's to have their own space without anyone too close to each other so they can pay attention and concentrate without distractions.

Having a classroom rug with enough space will allow my students to stay focused instead of worrying where about where and who they are sitting on. My students worry about this enough in their home environment. I want them to forget about that while at school!
