My Students

We are a first grade class of 25 to 30 students who are beginning their journey as lifelong learners. Many of my students cherish the opportunity to utilize our hands-on interactive class learning materials. They are always making suggestions for new class projects and I love being able to provide these opportunities.

My students always arrive eager to learn, full of curiosity, with the desire to showcase their knowledge in new, creative ways.

Ultimately, these materials help provide tangible learning experiences that promote a lifetime love of learning.

My Project

As I began moving into my new 1st grade classroom, I noticed I did not have a student carpet for class meetings, instruction, reading, or building with manipulatives, Legos, and Lincoln Logs.

I would like to provide a clean, colorful, affordable, and functional option on which my students can sit, learn, innovate, and create during carpet time and free building time.

The Flagship Carpets Dot Spots Seating Rug, Everyone Has a Spot rug is perfect for our potentially large class sizes. We will have enough room to spread out and work together.

My students work hard and deserve to have a nice place to gather, learn, create, explore, and invent. Thank you in advance for donating to our project. We greatly appreciate your support. You are making a difference in our future generations.

Thank you!
