Mrs. Fernandez from Miami FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

ELL Learners

My students need a rug for whole group instruction as the students focus better on the rug.

My Students

I work in Florida in a Title I charter school which opened 7 years ago. The school had made great strides since opening. The class I have is made up of 37 ELL/ low income students that most are on food stamps. Most of my students have parents that do not know English, so they get very little help at home academically. Their parents try their best, but it is hard for them to help their child when they do not speak the language.

My Project

My students will be able to sit closer to me on the rug, so they will be able to hear and see better. This will help to improve my students' grades. I will also use the rug to model what they are expected to do. The class has tiles, so I do not want to sit on the tiles. Most of the instruction is done with them sitting at their desk, but sometimes they have to sit on the floor too. From their desk, most of my students that are 7 years old do not pay attention to close details. I have tried to use a carpet square, but they do not work when they are moving a lot. A carpet is more comfortable for them to sit on. This year is a critical year as they need to be prepared for third grade which is a just around the corner.
