Mrs. Williams from Shelbyville TN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I love each of my students and all of their unique personalities. I am so proud of the sense of community we can develop on this rug. I know they will enjoy a new area in which to learn, and will be proud to take ownership of our new rug. They will be responsible for keeping it clean and neat, and will be very productive students as they use it.

With this rug, I believe my students will be happier and more productive.

They will take ownership of the rug and learn to be more responsible for personal property. Our class will be able to interact in carpet time with the rug.

My Project

At this point in the year, they are learning the letters and sounds of the alphabet and this rug will be perfect for them to interact with the rug.

With this rug, I believe my students will be happier and more productive.

They will take ownership of the rug and learn to be more responsible for personal property. Our class will be able to interact in carpet time with the rug.

They remind me daily to check our goal. I believe this also teaches my students the importance of having a giving heart, and a feeling that intrinsic reward. We would be so excited to receive this new, colorful interactive alphabet and letters rug.

My class is very excited to see if we will be able to get our project funded!
