Let's Take a Magic Carpet Ride

My students need a classroom carpet to sit during story time and group work!

My Students

Do you remember sitting on the carpet in elementary school listening to the teacher read a story? This was one of my favorite memories from elementary school. My students are in need of a classroom carpet so they can sit, relax, and make their own memories!

I teach in a low income school district, and each year more and more cuts are being made to our school.

We lack the money and resources needed to buy the "extra" things to make our school day run smoother. Our school has been drastically affected by the budget cuts, and it is up to the teachers to purchase the materials and supplies we need.

My Project

I am asking for a classroom area rug. My students need a place to sit and read or listen to stories. They also need a comfortable area to work in groups. We currently move their chairs throughout the day for reading time or group work. Moving the chairs back and forth wastes so much time during the lessons. A classroom area rug would help eliminate this problem. The students would be able to just grab their materials and find a seat on the carpet!

Please consider funding my project.

This request for a new carpet will help create a learning environment that gives my students a fair chance. I promise we will use this donation daily in the classroom. Thank you for your time and commitment to my students and their education.
