Hooray! This project is fully funded
My second grade class is made up of 26 students. They are a diverse group of kids. They represent a variety of nationalities such as Hispanic, African American, and Caucasian. A few have been diagnosed with learning disabilities or ADHD. Eighty-five percent come from a low socioeconomic background. All of my students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.
My students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom but that doesn't stop them from succeeding.
In class, they are eager to learn new concepts as well as improve foundational skills. I do my best to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
As with all 6 and 7-year-olds, my students are very active. This year we are working in a flexible seating classroom. This allows them to move around and find a spot to complete their assignments. My students love being able to choose a seat which works best for them.
A new, clean rug is needed. Our current rug is over 10 years old. It has been used in several different classrooms. It is faded and dirty. The corners are rolling up, causing a tripping hazard.
The rug is an important place in our classroom.
We start each day on the rug to review expectations and take attendance. Throughout the day, we return to the rug for instructions and lessons. We read together and have discussions. Our flexible seating allows us to sit or lay on the rug to read or complete classwork. We would appreciate your support in helping us get this new, colorful rug.
