Ms. Hortop from Medford MN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfy Cozy Corner

My students need a classroom carpet for a comfortable space to sit, lay, and stretch while we do group activities, small group work, and morning meetings.

My Students

My students love to be apart of whole group learning. We sit together as a group to engage and discuss topics of learning and things as simple as what students had for dinner. All students are eager to learn new things that will benefit them for their future.

Our class is very active in learning and in life.

They crave learning, group discussions, and hands on experiences. We work hard on being cooperative and collaborating with others. By doing this, my students learn more from each other than they would from a text book or listening to be teach.

My Project

Comfort is one way to ensure students have a positive and uplifting learning environment. Being comfortable increasing engagement and willingness to listen and learning. Currently my students are sitting on title floors and become very antsy and lose their focus. Having a carpet gives students with learning disabilities a safe place to go.

Having this comfy cozy carpet will create a safe and comfortable space where students will go to be engaged and focused.

My students choose the couches and chairs before going to the floor which creates a hard work space for group work. This carpet will help bring small groups together.
