Ms. Weaber from Phoenix AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seat: A Classroom Rug

My students need a rug to provide the opportunity for more in depth teaching and learning by giving an alternative space in the classroom that students feel they can concentrate and delve into learning.

My Students

My students are a group of kindergartners that attend a Title I school in a Phoenix urban school district. They are from a diverse set of backgrounds and include English language learners, special education students, and those receiving free or reduced-price lunches.

Most importantly, my students love coming to school, learning, and being in kindergarten.

We are requesting a rug for our classroom to use during our story time, calendar, and whole group lessons. My students need a cozy carpet to invite them to learn. We spend most of our day on the floor, and my students would love to have a comfy space of their own while they take on the learning challenges of kindergarten.

Having this classroom rug will allow my students to stay focused on their learning.

My Project

With a classroom rug, my students will have a richer environment to learn. There are many hours in the day and we do varied activities both in group and individual work. It is optimal for students to have both their desks and a rug to sit at throughout the day.

Students can spread out during independent reading, work on group projects, and have rug spots to sit at during mini-lessons and whole group instruction.

Students are often better able to concentrate when sitting at the rug for read alouds and Reading and Writing Workshop.

A rug also offers alternative seating arrangements for students who require varied learning environments. A classroom rug creates more space to discover, community build, play and share.
