I am currently working for an elementary school located in Washington Heights. Although, I am elated to teach my fourth grade bilingual students, there is a necessary item that helps me as a bilingual teacher. My students are in desperate need of a meeting rug. My students haven't experienced "meeting at a rug" with a teacher. I would love to read a book aloud to my students or even converse about important issues happening in the world nowadays. I would also want my students to feel comfortable in a country different from their country. I want my bilingual students to get the same support as monolingual students. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds in our school my students and I were not granted a rug. My students have asked me "Ms. Columna do bilingual students ever get a meeting rug?" I was truly happy when a very good friend of mine recommended Donorschoose as a great reference that helps teachers in need of supplies. My students and I discussed this web site together. I told them that this would be a great site that can help us with our rug dilemma. I also mentioned, that this is no guarantee but that it wouldn't hurt to try. My students will greatly benefit from this rug($379.00) more than anyone can imagine. The students will experience what it is to have a "meeting rug". Students will be able to read, and discuss with their fellow peers about books.
