Ms. Nixon from Indianapolis IN is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help us....A New Classroom Rug Is What We Need!

My students need a new carpet to sit on for whole group instruction. We have one that is very OLD and VERY busy. It is more distracting than a place to sit and learn.

My Students

A typical day in our classroom involves the students sitting on the carpet for reading lessons, large group instruction and we also use it for some math instruction. Students may also sit on the carpet for station activities and reading to themselves or with a partner.

My class is a diverse group of students that live in a low income, inner city environment.

Many students live in homes where English is a second language and live in substandard housing. Despite their disadvantages, most are eager to please and anxious to learn.

My Project

Some may think a rug/carpet is just a decorative item for the classroom, but there are so many more benefits than that. The students would have a comfortable and attractive area to sit during whole group instruction and also during other times throughout our learning day. This project would allow students to have their own personal space to sit. The students could even use the rug for learning games, grouping, and individual reading time as well as partner reading.

Having a rug in our classroom will allow for an easier transition from home to school.

Sitting at a table for long periods of time can be frustrating. It can also be very helpful with all of the allergies we have in the room. A new carpet would hopefully eliminate some of those yucky allergens.
