My Students

My students begin and end each day together on the rug. We spend a great deal of time using our rug space for science projects, large group math activities, and for Promethean Board activities. It is our home base.

FATE is a quaint little school in a neighborhood that feels like a small town in a big city.

The classes are small and everyone is treated like family. The majority of students come from low-income households and have limited resources, yet we have an extremely active PTA. We take great pride in the level of parental involvement at FATE. I will be moving up from Pre-K into Kindergarten and will leave behind my bright and busy classroom. I am moving into a classroom with many materials, but with limited furnishings. I am unable to bring any with me from my current classroom. I would like to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in my new classroom with a vibrant meeting space, but I need your help.

My Project

I am requesting a new classroom rug for our large group meeting space. This rug will help build our classroom culture and community by giving us a comfortable space to work together on projects. A large rug will allow us to conduct science experiments together as a whole group and will give us a place to sit when we are using the Promethean Board as a class. Additionally, it will allow us to use math tubs as independent centers during our math block. Students can work with partners to play math games in a well-defined space. My new classroom has a small rug, but it isn't big enough to accommodate the entire class and it is quite faded. I selected this particular rug because it matches our school logo. It has a large tree and each student can sit on a leaf. Having personal space is very important to Kindergarten students and the pattern on the rug will help with classroom management.

By donating to this project, you will not only enhance the visual appeal of the classroom, you will also provide a sense of community for the students.

Your contribution will impact students in each subject area by providing an essential learning space in the room.
