Mrs. Shirley from Minneola FL is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

On a Magic Carpet Ride

My students need a "Reading Rug" for a magical spot to enjoy and discuss our favorite books, poems, and publishings.

  • $391 goal

This project expired on February 20, 2010.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My classroom has 21 precious and eager learners from many different backgrounds, races, and abilities.

My students are sitting on a linoleum tiled floor as we read, write, share, and make learning adventures together.

With a rug to sit upon, my students will be so much more eager to remain on their comfy journeys as they read, write, share, and learn together. This special rug from you will enable my students to "visit" places in our own country and bring social studies lessons to life. How great it will be to travel across the United States in a single school day!

Thank you for your willingness to support students in their learning and for helping to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort as students read, write, and learn about the amazing country that they live in.
