Peace Time on a Colorful Carpet

My students need a comfy carpet for meeting time. Each square is designated to each student.

My Students

A typical day is busy and filled with rich class discussion. My goal by the end of the year is for everyone to show growth and that they have learned to love to read.

"A person who won't read has no advantage over someone who can't." ~Mark Twain

My students have an enthusiasm for learning. All of the students have different learning styles. Some are visual, some auditory, and some are kinesthetic learners. Their interests range from soccer and Minecraft to horses, guitar, and reading "Diary of the Wimpy Kid."

My Project

I have a great spot in my classroom where students can meet with me. I utilize this space for mini lessons, read aloud, and morning meetings. We focus our meetings on ways to spread peace. My students have said how awesome it would be to share our ideas for spreading peace on a colorful carpet.

Please donate to continue to help make my classroom a colorful and inviting place to learn.

The classroom carpet is a time where students don't need to sit in their desks and have time to learn in a different modality.

Thank you in advance for your help and generosity. I know my third graders will be very grateful.
