Mrs. R. from Dearborn MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

No More Sitting on a Bare Ground!

My students need a rug to sit on during our group work or when we do story time. Our classroom tends to flood so carphet was removed. We need something to sit on during circle time.

My Students

The majority of our students are ESL learners (English as a Second Language) not being native English speakers makes their school work an extra challenge for them. These students come into class ready to take on that challenge. You would never hear them complain. They are filled with potential to learn so that they can communicate with the other students and teachers around them.

Our school is a Title One school we serve a large number, about 99% of these students come from poverty.

These students love to learn and come to school but are faced with more struggles and obstacles than an adult can endure. The teachers work hard to make sure these students know that their positive attitude is what will help them strive to learn.

My students love being active, independent learners. They work so hard everyday, dedicated to learn and are willing to take every battle, big or small that the world throws at them in order to succeed. I believe in every single one of them and call them my shining bright stars! Every day they shine bright with positive attitude as they walk through the classroom door, ready to learn.

My Project

My students love getting together on the floor specially during circle time. The ground is cold and isn’t comfortable to sit on making it hard to focus. Having a rug to sit on when we meet together would help students focus and sit comfortably for a longer period of time. This would allow us to do more read alouds and turn to your partner discussions.

My Students need a rug to have a comfortable and colorful place to come for whole group time.

In my classroom I strive to create an environment that is comfortable and that will allow students to have the best learning experience possible. We have whole group time several times throughout the day. My students come sit on the floor in front of the blakboard at various times throughout the day. Having a rug would make it more enjoyable for students to
