Mrs. Gosnell from Taylors SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Sit Up Front!

My students need a bright new classroom rug so that they can sit closer to instruction and be fully engaged in the lesson.

My Students

My fifth graders are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things!

Fifth grade is a pivotal and exciting year of learning and prepares them for middle school and beyond.

I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year.

My Project

My classroom needs a new, whole group classroom rug. I am moving to a new classroom that does not have one. A rug would allow my students to move up front for all instruction. We will also use the rug for partner and group work. A classroom rug is a great place to come for extra help or to be fully engaged in the lesson.

A classroom rug also helps to foster interaction between students and teachers and allows for students to gather at that spot to hear their favorite book read aloud.

Please help me foster learning with a new rug!! Thank you for investing in my students!
