My Students

It is the beginning of the school year, and my kiddos will be learning so much. I am looking forward to watching them grow from scared little boys and girls to independent life-long learners!

Our class consists of a very diverse group of kiddos.

They are very active, but very excited about learning. They love learning new things and using hands-on centers for learning. Our school is based in a low-socioeconomic area, where all of our students are on free lunch.

My Project

Ever had to sit on a hard, cold floor? We all know it is not very comfortable. When having a comfortable place to sit is not available, learning will not take place. Students will concentrate on being cold and being uncomfortable so their attention will not be on learning, therefore learning will not take place.

I am asking for this project to be funded so my sweet kiddos could have a nice, soft, warm place to sit.

This rug will help ensure that they will have a nice place to sit while we are having whole group and/or small group activities. They will also be attentive rather than worrying about the floor being hard and cold.
