Ms. Rich from Carlsbad NM is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Have a Seat and Stay a While

My students need a large rug so that they will have an area to sit when class is having morning meetings or whole group math instructions.

My Students

I have a crowd of kind hearted, creative and inquisitive first graders! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They show up each day prepared to try new things and take bold steps in order to grow both personally and academically. Inside my classroom, I incorporate numerous learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating arrangements. My goal is to ensure that each student's needs are met. I am thankful for the opportunity to be inspired to assist students in achieving their goals.

My Project

With the comfort of a rug in the classroom students will know where to sit during class meetings, group lessons, and/or storytime. Students will have the extra padding from the rug that will improve their ability to stay engaged. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them and encouraging participation. Students will no longer have to search for an acceptable place to sit but rather have a designated area to learn while they sit in a common area during lessons, story time, or meetings. I hope that the addition of a classroom rug will help us grow even more as a group!
