Mrs. Ryan from Staten Island NY is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Meet And Learn!

My students need a rug for an engaging meeting area to learn! I currently have four area rugs that do not support my 33 students.

My Students

Everyone wants to succeed. An inviting environment is one of the first steps!

My students are fifth graders in a public school.

They are honor students who I am already extremely proud of in just two days. It is so encouraging when the year starts like this. They want to do their best work and I want to do whatever it takes to support them.

My Project

My students will learn from the mini-lessons in the meeting area. We strive for independence. We meet, learn the task and then form groups. One group stays at the carpet. I get the best work out of that group. I know it will only get better with a fresh new carpet!

Currently we do not have enough space on the four throw rugs that are there now to hold 33 students.

I am always moving the students around so we can fit in the meeting area. I told the students I was going to try and have a new carpet for them this year and they got so excited. I want that enthusiasm to continue.
