This school year, I am teaching 29 prek students who are eager and ready to learn. Most of my students come from low income families and for many of my students, this is their first year in a school setting. I teach in an urban district where unfortunately we do not have funding for these resources.
I would like nap mats so that rest time can be comfortable for my students.
My students bring a variety of backgrounds and experiences to the classroom. While I cannot control their lives outside of the classroom, I can make sure that the classroom is a safe and comforting place for them while they are here.
I am seeking to get 20 nap mats for my students to use during their rest time. Currently, students only have mats to use if their family purchases them. Our school is majority low income families, and many families cannot afford to purchase one for their child.
Providing nap mats for my students will allow them to get the best rest possible during nap time.
Sleeping while sitting in a chair with heads down at a table is not comfortable for students and many students have difficulty napping this way. For some students who experience high mobility or unsure living situations, rest time is important for them to catch up on sleep that they may be missing outside of school.
