Ms. Cook from Jackson MI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Colorful Classroom Whole-Group Seating!

My students need a large area rug for whole group instruction.

My Students

My school is located in a rural community. I have 28 bright, beautiful and happy faces to teach each day!! All students in my classroom love to learn, laugh and have fun.

We have an economically diverse community.

Many students are "at-risk" and some families live in moderate to high poverty. Family involvement and a positive school culture is strongly encouraged and facilitated through our staff. Some of our students may not come to school with lots of family experiences or background knowledge to build upon, but ALL students want to succeed.

My Project

My goal is to create a "meeting area" in my classroom that is inviting and makes collaboration fun! If the the classroom learning environment is pleasant and welcoming, students will feel secure and excited to learn.

With a classroom rug, I will be able to provide a comfortable, colorful place for our classroom to come together and work as a team of learners.

It would provide them with a place to comfortably meet as a group and interact positively in the classroom. I would use the new rug to teach students literacy in a small group as well as whole-group learning!!
