Ms. Yates from Jefferson City MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Come Together and Learn

Help me give my students a comfortable and safe learning environment by providing a carpet for large group learning. This will help establish a school family and meeting place in the classroom.

My Students

My students walk into class everyday, to a safe and stimulating learning environment. They need to be comfortable in order to reach an optimal learning experience. This is why I am choosing to use alternative seating.

Young students require movement and the ability to express themselves.

My students are between the ages of five and six years old. Many of them have no previous experience in a structured environment and have never had to sit at a table and work to learn academics.

My Project

My students have a real need for a sense of community and belonging. Many of my students lack necessary social skills and abilities to allow them to work successfully among their peers.

Creating a safe and comfortable place for students to gather will help promote social learning and a supportive community.

By providing students with a safe and comfortable meeting place, like a large carpet, students will be able to build relationships with their peers. This meeting area will transform my classroom from an institutional setting to a cozy home for learning.

The carpet will be a meeting place for so many learning activities including team building, literacy activities, math games, and growing together as a class. This meeting place will be the place we have conversations, where my students will learn to listen and respect their peers and their opinions, and where we problem solve as a class and family.

With your support, many memories will be created in this amazing meeting spot within our classroom.
