Entering my third year of teaching, I have come to learn how much environment is connected to motivation. I would like to provide my 2nd grade students in the Bronx with an environment for reading and learning this year and for years to come. I want to be able to create an inviting library area where students can have a quiet and comfortable space for reading ,which is something that a lot of my students who live in the local shelters rarely get. The carpet is our main meeting area for lessons and group meetings. The problem with the current carpet we have is that it is a carpet scrap that shows signs of everyday use and it is not big enough to fit all of the students. Some students end up sitting on the floor or have a difficult time concentrating because they do not have enough personal space on the carpet. By helping to fund this project, you will not only be helping to support our goal of reading 1,000 books and be helping to launch our buddy reading, but you will also be helping to create an inviting environment that is conducive to learning. Our class is asking for your help in improving our classroom environment by donating a brand new carpet with 24 squares so each student can have his or her personal space. We are also asking for two bean bags so that students can have a clean, inviting area to read and work toward their reading goals!
