Mr. Dennis from Tucker GA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lets Rug It Out!

Help me give my students a library carpet and mini-lesson whole group carpet that every eight and nine year old deserves.

My Students

My students are hard workers, caring, always learning, and yet so different from one another. The student population at my school is primarily Hispanic, Asian, and African-American. I believe students learn best when they have hands-on manipulatives, inquiry based experiments, resources, and the right equipment to help construct their learning.

Hakuna Matata!

It means no worries. That's exactly what I want my kids to have when they enter my classroom on the first day of school next month. Help us rug it out. Thanks.

My Project

I am starting at a new school in a new county this year. My new school is an older school so the classrooms do not have carpet. The carpet is where we come together as one. The carpet is where they will sit down and listen to me read books to them. Both of these carpets will serve different needs in our classroom. One carpet would be used for our mini lesson whole group time, and the other carpet would be in our classroom library.

Support me!

Support the vision I have for my classroom and my students! Thank you.
