My Students

I am a regular ed teacher with a new group of first graders coming in August. I was in a temporary classroom last year with very little room for materials for my students. Thankfully I’m moving into a BIG new classroom and I’m so excited to have more room for my kiddos to explore and learn in a space more conducive to first grade activities! A huge part of my instruction takes place in group time on the carpet. This is somewhat of an issue since I don’t have a classroom rug, due to the tiny room I was previously in. I desperately want to be able to teach my students the right way but I need a classroom rug in order to do that. They are expensive and aren’t provided by my school.

My Project

Having a classroom rug will bring us all together as a classroom community. Students need to come together on the carpet at several different points in the day. They’re more focused and happier when we are all learning together down on the carpet! Our reading program is planned around circle time for phonics, teacher directed reading, writing mini lessons and “show me” math activities. These special times during the day are especially beneficial to students with attention issues. Please help me turn my classroom into a cozy, comfy community by funding my Donors Choose project! Thanks so much in advance.
