Cold Hard Floors Or A Comfortable Carpet

My students need a comfortable place to sit when listening to a book, engaging in a lesson, or working with each other in a group.

My Students

Our school is a "lottery school". Parents enter their child in our lottery for the chance to attend our school. The children who attend our school are of all different ethnic backgrounds and mostly come from low performing zoned schools whose parents just want better for them. I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. They deserve the opportunities that are available for students of higher income and more financially stable families. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Every classroom needs a warm, welcoming, and comfortable carpet.

The carpet is an essential part of any classroom where students gather to learn and work together.

Students come together on the carpet for whole group and small group lessons on a daily basis. Some students wish to work on the carpet during independent or group work as it can help them concentrate and be more productive. Without a carpet, they'd be left with a cold, hard floor to sit on. Please consider donating to this project so that my students can enjoy a safe and warm space within our classroom.
