My Students

My fourth grade students are sponges. They soak everything up and more. Most importantly, they are passionate about learning. Their imagination and creativity is through the roof. These superstars deserve the best learning environment.

As their teacher, I want my students to have every opportunity possible.

I want to create a classroom environment where they are comfortable enough to flourish. Every student learns in different ways and it is essential to meet the learning needs of each and every student.

My Project

These rugs would bring new excitement to our classroom environment. My students are currently sitting and reading on very old bland brown rugs. The color alone is depressing! Nowadays, some students prefer to sit on the floor rather than at their desks. They work on many projects and working on the floor gives them more workspace.

The new rugs would provide extra comfort for my students as well.

Wouldn’t you want to read in the most comfortable way possible? My students would now have the option to even lay down. When students are comfortable in their environment, success is inevitable. The floor chairs would be awesome for students who need support behind their backs. I want every student to feel the most comfortable possible.
