Creating A Community Space For Little Learners!

Help me give my students a classroom carpet to create a community learning space!

My Students

I currently have 18 first graders in my class who are a group of hardworking friends and learners. The students love to share their ideas and work together. They are eager to become successful readers, writers, and mathematicians.

Each student in my class adds a unique dynamic to our classroom.

They have created a warm, supportive classroom community. Each day we work on phonics, math facts, fluent reading, and creating ideas. It is a blessing to watch them grow each day!

My Project

Each morning we start our day with a class morning meeting. We then utilize this same space throughout the day for reading, math, and social studies. Many ideas and discoveries are made in this space. As of now, our space only has small carpets and carpet squares, which causes discomfort and distractions for the students.

For my project, I am asking for donations towards a classroom carpet to create a warm, comfortable learning space for my students.

One large carpet will allow students to focus more on their learning and less on their comfort. It will also allow us to feel more like a community during our learning time.
