My Students

I'm a first year teacher, and I want my students to have the best learning environment possible. I'll be teaching 3rd grade literacy at a school in the south side of Chicago. I'm super excited to start my teaching career, and I would greatly appreciate any help in funding my classroom to ensure a positive experience for all of my students. Unfortunately, there are specific things I deem necessary that aren't provided to me, which is why I am on here!

My Project

The carpet I am asking for will provide a comfortable learning environment and allow for group instruction and collaboration. It will also allow us to create a safe and happy learning environment, in which we will use it to also play games and get to know each other better. I specifically picked this carpet because it allows for very clear instruction, in that it has specific squares that I can instruct students to sit on. This will help me in effectively managing my classroom. Thank you so much in advance for your help. I look forward to starting my first year as a teacher!
