Help me give my students a place where imagination can come to life!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students from rural Kentucky walk into the classroom curious and ready to learn. Books are an escape from reality and unlock an imagination that takes children to other places. The majority are being raised by their grandparents and have no one to read to them at home, and they often do not have the resources to allow this. Many live in only a one or two room apartment. They are eager to learn and explore another world while in reading class.
After ten years teaching first grade, I am moving classrooms to teach second grade. My current classroom rug will stay in my old classroom. My students deserve a place where they can read comfortably and escape from their reality. Many of my students do not have the luxury of their own space at home, so I’d like them to be able to curl up on the carpet with a good book.
When students are comfortable and feel safe learning comes more easily.
With your help of giving them a classroom rug, they can unlock other worlds through their imagination while reading many books.
