New Rug

My students need a new carpet. All 24 of them just don't seem to fit on my little carpet.

My Students

Imagine being 8 years old and not having a place to sit with your class, or watching a few of your friends get to sit on a comfy carpet while you have to stay in your seat because their just isn't enough room for everyone?

My class is a wonderful group of fun, energetic and inquisitive third graders.

Many of my students are very busy and have a hard time sitting in their seats for long periods of time. They just need to get up and move. They love to learn and they work hard every day. All they really need is a place to spread out and enjoy a good book, play a math game, or create a science experiment.

My Project

Having a large carpet can change the way my students spend their day. At the present time, I have a very tiny carpet in my classroom. No where near enough room for all my students. Therefore, they have to stay in their seats when we read stories, play math games, or have a class meeting. This is not ideal for anyone especially a group of very tall, energetic 8 year old kids. This carpet could allow them all to have their own space and allow them to have the change in position they need. Just a 15 second transition can make all the difference in their concentration and focus them. Not to mention the collaboration that can be achieved when we are all sitting in a circle facing each other.

Many of the students in my classroom are not used to new items nor do they have a space all their own.

They have to wear hand me down clothes and share even their beds with a sibling or two. Your donation can not only provide them with a nice place to sit but prove to them that people care about them and people are willing to do good deeds for the common good of others.
