Mrs. Galbraith from Ogden UT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making School Enjoyable for First Years

My students need a comfortable place that allows them to concentrate during story time and calendar math.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic learners. They really enjoy going to carpet time; however, with a concrete floor it is not comfortable for their little bodies. They do better when they have an assigned place so that they know where to go during our reading and math time.

My students are energetic and like to move around for different activities.

Story time on the carpet is one of their favorite things to do. They enjoy getting time away from their desks and sitting next to someone else.

My Project

The carpet we are requesting will be a wonderful addition to our alcove area. Each student will feel a space is set aside for her or him personally with the colored square sections. They will always know where to go when it's time for calendar math and teacher read aloud time eliminating daily stress for my young students.

Individual learning zones can make shy students feel more comfortable allowing them to participate in our lessons.

This will also give active students personal space without disturbing others around them. Along with this, it will be much more comfortable for their little bodies to sit on a carpet than on the concrete floor.
