Mrs. Bruens from Watseka IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a fun carpet space to meet and discover all possibilities while learning.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous. They like to move, they love to read in an organized station and love lots of positive reinforcement and attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 70% of our students receiving free lunch. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple. I want to provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience. From the minute they walk in my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, but I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on!!
The place for everyone carpet that I am requesting for my students already has a "home." In other words, I know exactly where it will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The large carpet will be placed in the front of the classroom and used as a gathering place during mini-lessons and share time. This colorful space will also be used in our classroom library area. The children will be able to find a spot and curl up with a good book and go on an adventure.
Our current space is tattered, losing color, and not inviting, so this new carpet will definitely help my students feel like new and want to get to that area to share our lessons together and read a good book together.
Reading in First Grade is such an important part of our day. We READ all day long and this new carpet will make our classroom feel like home and brighten it up! This place for everyone classroom carpet will be a wonderful place for learning and fun!
