My Students

Hi Everyone! My name is Ms. LaBate. Thank you so much for reviewing our project. I am a 2nd grade teacher in a Minneapolis Arts and Science Charter school. As a charter school, we do receive less funding than Minnesota district schools and rely on the generosity of supporters like you! I teach a wonderful group of 2nd graders. We have such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are still working hard to develop the necessary skills to be successful readers and writers, while others are being challenged to grow and excel in their learning. My students have amazing energy to learn and succeed and we are continously building a strong community within our classroom.

My Project

The classroom carpet is a common meeting place for students and the teacher. Concepts are introduced and practiced. Stories are heard. Thinking takes place. We can gather around something new and explore it together. It's that one special place where everyone feels welcome and everyone knows that something new and exciting is about to take place! The carpet is a home inside a classroom, fostering learning and creativity.

Community is so critical in developing confident, capable learners.

By having a classroom carpet, the students will have a chance to get out of their chairs and come together to learn up close and personal! We often use the carpet for morning meetings and whole group learning so it is continously used throughout the day for learning and building community.
