I teach second grade inclusion at an elementary school on the Big Island in Hawaii. My students represent many different cultures and economic backgrounds. Most of my students are "disadvantaged" due to economic backgrounds.
Although my students may be facing challenges in their lives, they are always eager to learn new things.
Our school has been using a state mandated reading and math curriculum. Many of our students are struggling, especially with the reading curriculum. Our students experience difficulty relating to the stories shared in the reading curriculum, because of their limited exposure to different climates and cultures. Many of our students have never left the Hawaiian islands; therefore, their personal experiences are very limited.
This area rug is a much-needed item for our second grade classroom. Our current carpet area is "permanently fixed" in a corner of our classroom away from our interactive white board. Therefore, this area rug will be placed in front of the whiteboard where my students can sit comfortably.
Your generous donation will provide my students with a comfortable place to sit while I teach whole group instruction using our interactive white board and for storytime.
Students could also utilize this carpet area for collaborating with one another in small groups and as an alternative flexible seating option.
